Big East Power Rankings

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back, Hoyas fans! After a week off to travel back home, I'm back to break down where the teams in the Big East stack up after one week of conference play. The tip-off marathon on New Year's Eve provided some exciting basketball, with Seton Hall and Providence kicking off the action with a double overtime thriller. Georgetown's victory over DePaul on Tuesday was by no means comforting, but the Hoyas are 2-0 in league play at this stage with an early road trip approaching. I'll be back next week with actual analysis and stats, but in the meantime, let's enjoy some rankings.
