Big East Clinching scenarios update

Well, looking at the results from this weekend, things are still pretty miffy. It's mathematically possible I believe for five (!!) teams to finish with a 14-4 conference record. In order for this to happen, we'd have to lose out, Georgetown and South Florida would have to win out, and ND and Marquette would both have their only remaining loss vs Georgetown. I don't even want to know what would happen in that case, so we're going to assume that doesn't happen. Here's how the conference picture looks right now:

Syracuse - Has clinched a first round bye. We MAY have clinched a double bye as well, only way we lose it is if the scenario I described above happens, and we end up at the short end of the stick after all the mathing out. Either way, we clinch a double bye for sure with:

-A win OR

-A Georgetown loss OR

-A Marquette loss.

In addition, Syracuse can clinch the regular season title with:

-A win AND a Notre Dame loss.

Notre Dame - Has clinched a first round bye. I don't think they can do anything else this week.

Marquette - Has clinched a first round bye. They can't do anything else this week.

Georgetown - Can clinch a first round bye with:

-A win AND a West Virginia loss.

South Florida - Can clinch a first round bye with

-A win AND a West Virginia loss (hopefully not this way), OR

-Losses by West Virginia AND UConn

Louisville/Cincinnati - Can clinch a first round bye with

-A win OR

-Losses by both UConn AND Seton Hall
