So it looks like the Cuse will most likely be getting either the #6 or #7 seed in the Big East Tournament. #8 could still be in play, while #5 is not. So that begs the question - which seed do we want?
Let's ignore the #8 for right now, because although possible, WVU would have to beat Lousiville and PC would have to beat Nova - I don't see both things happening. So let's compare #6 vs #7.
They both require you to play a monster in the third round (most likley Pitt or Lousiville), so I think the consideration is better focused on who we would play on Wednesday night. As of today, #6 would get the winner of St. Johns-USF, while the #7 would get the winner of ND-Rutgers. That makes #6 look much better today. However, if everything goes as expected this week for G'Town (beats DePaul), SH (lose @ Cinci) and SJU (lose @ ND), then G'Town would move up to the #11 seed and likely play the #6 seed on Wednesday. In that scenario, I might actually prefer being the #7 seed, thereby presumably getting the winner of ND-Rutgers.
Also, does anyone know of a place laying out all of these scenarios with a focus on the impact to the Cuse?
