There are two weeks left until the end of the regular season. Coming down to the homestretch, there has been a number of changes. Syracuse took back to back losses, ending their undefeated streak and knocking them off of the #1 spot. In their place, Florida moves up to the top spot. Villanova won their games this past week, and move up to #8. Fellow Big East member, Creighton, moves into the top 10. Last week they were tied with Louisville at #11, this week Bluejays are now #9.  Here’s a look at the rankings, courtesy of ESPN:

As for the rest of the Big East, ESPN Joe Lunardi has Xavier dancing in March. St. John’s and Providence are looking at a play-in game. Here’s how the Wildcats are looking for March:

  1. Interesting how Creighton has moved up to a 2 seed, while Nova stayed as a 3 seed, even though the Blue Jays almost lost to Seton Hall and we beat a very hot St. Johns team. Also interesting that Joe Lunardi has us playing the winner of the St. Joes/Iowa game in Buffalo, leaving us with either a Battle 4 Atlantis Championship rematch or 2014 Holy War: Part 2
