ESPN/USA Today Rankings: Hoyas #10

The ESPN/USA Today Poll just game out. After beating UConn and getting drubbed (at home) to Pitt, the Georgetown Hoyas are #10.

The biggger story, however, is the incredibly strong showing for the Big East. After UNC's suprise loss to BC, The Pitt Panthers take the number 1 slots for the first time in school history. Behind them in the top 25 are another eight Big East teams, including three more in the top 10--UConn at number five, Syracuse at number nine, and, again, Georgetown at number 10. The Big East's other representatives in the Top 25 are Notre Dame (13), Marquette (15), Villanova (17), Louisville (21), and West Virginia (22).

It's going to be a long Big East season!
