  1. The nonconference games we'd love to see

    Dana O'Neil

    We've officially judged and juried every nonconference schedule. Kudos to the teams that had the nerve to schedule bravely. Your just rewards could come in March, when the selection committee recognizes the merits of playing tough opponents, even if...

  2. Louisville gets chance to leave final stamp

    Dana O'Neil

    NEW YORK -- This last run of the Big East tournament as we know it has been all about the old teams, the stalwarts from the league's beginning either moving on or rebuilding the league in its own original image. Except a funny thing has happened w...

  3. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    And so here we are at the end of the Big East regular season, and yet we're back where we started. The league is still unsettled and undecided, but the same team picked at the beginning is back at the top, and that's Louisville. 1. Louisville. Don...

  4. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    Four teams -- DePaul, Rutgers, Seton Hall and South Florida -- have guaranteed themselves Tuesday games in the Big East tournament. Nothing else is quite settled, though Georgetown is making a good case to think about closing the books. One case that...

  5. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    Together they have won four of the past six Big East regular-season crowns and 11 overall, so no surprise first place is on the line when Syracuse and Georgetown meet for the final time as league members at the Carrier Dome. Marquette and Louisville ...

  6. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    To death and taxes, I add Marquette. The Golden Eagles are the one thing you can count on annually. A year after losing the Big East's player of the year and league's leading scorer (and they were two different people) Buzz Williams' team is back aga...

  7. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    Coaches love to say that, on any given night, a team can lose. Apparently the Big East would like to make that its motto. The league has become either strangely unpredictable or woefully unstable, depending on your point of view. What looked like ...

  8. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    Conference play always serves as the great revealer, separating the real teams from the pretenders and outing soft nonconference seasons for the record-padding fluff that they are. We've already seen a little separation in just the first week of t...

  10. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    It was a noisy quiet week for the Big East. With plenty of teams enjoying some holiday downtime, two of the best played -- and lost their first games of the season. Both Syracuse and Cincinnati dropped from the ranks of the unbeatens, but neither ...

  11. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    It's been a strange week in the Big East. Basketball finally found its voice in conference realignment but in doing so wrecked what had been college basketball's best league. The seven Catholic schools announced they would leave the Big East in 2015,...

  12. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    Not much holiday feasting in the Big East. Most teams are in that sort of idle mode where they either don't play or play only a beatable opponent. The big winners of the week: Marquette (which bounced back from its loss to Florida to beat rival Wisco...

  13. Conference Power Rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    The top of the league is rock-solid strong, with six nationally relevant programs in Syracuse, Louisville, Cincinnati, Georgetown, Notre Dame and, yes, I'm buying -- Pittsburgh. After that, things already are muddy. Connecticut is better than anyo...

  14. Conference power rankings: Big East

    Dana O'Neil

    The early season is always hard to judge -- what with some teams playing tougher teams than others. So you have to rate not only the result but also the opponents teams played and how they played them. Hence the first week hodgepodge of the Big Ea...

  15. Coaches vs. Cancer Primer

    Dana O'Neil

    An interesting doubleheader combo of four teams you wouldn't normally put together but also four teams that are sort of on the game's fringe right now. Notre Dame is ranked, Saint Joseph's was picked to win the Atlantic 10. Still none of these teams ...

    Great basketball will be played across the country this season, but no region will beat Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Dana O'Neil maps out the perfect road trip for hoops fanatics, ending in Rising Sun, Ind.
