There's a good chance that the Big East will be the nation's top basketball conference this year. Yes, the PAC-10 is stronger by means of percentages, but the Big East has the chance to send 8 to the NCAA's this year. With the nation's largest conference, that would be a huge feat. It's hard to say which ones will make it, but here's the list of the teams I think have a good shot at making their case, in no particular order: Georgetown, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Marquette, Connecticut, West Virginia, Providence, and Notre Dame. Watch out for Cincinnati and De Paul, they could easily be sleepers of the league and can make some noise and ruin hopes for those listed above. What is the concensus of the rest of the country?
