Thanks UConn


Everyone may be upset with how the team and coaching staff have done lately, but with UConn's win over Pitt, there is still a sliver of hope.  Now, I'm no expert, so please explain to me where I am going wrong, but:


(continued after the jump)

For West Virginia to win the Big East, the following needs to happen:

1.  WVU must win out, 4-0.  It can happen.

2.  Syracuse must have at minimum 2 losses in the Big East.  - Thanks Louisville. 

3.  Pitt must have at least one loss prior to playing WVU.  - THAT JUST HAPPENED.

4.  UConn needs to lose another game in conference.

 

So, #2, and #3 have occurred.  If my fuzzy math is right, and WVU wins out, and UConn gets a loss, that puts WVU, Syracuse (if they win out) and PItt (if they win out, except for to WVU) in a 3 way tie with 2 conference losses.  That puts us in a mini conference scenario.

First up is the round robin. In this scenario, Syracuse lost to Pitt, who lost to WVU, who lost to Syracuse.  That solves nothing.

Then I believe it goes to standings, and that is where the internet is failing me right now.  Does anyone know if I'm making this up, or if I actually remember something from a couple of years ago.  And the Big East website, I don't find it as easy to maneuver in as it used to be.  But I don't like change, so I am a little bias.

Please feel free to comment.  I just felt that I needed to post something after Pitt lost.  Hooray!
