Why the Big East still has doubters

  • The Big East's record against the BPI top 50 is strong, but the league is just 3-11 vs. BPI top 25 non-conference foes.
  • Since realignment (2013-14), Xavier is the only team to reach the Sweet 16. Villanova has been bounced twice in the Round of 32.
  • Current Big East schools haven't reached the Final Four since Butler in 2011. The last national title was won by Villanova in 1985.
