2012 Big East Women's Basketball Tournament Preview: A Look at the Second Tier

Day 1 of the Women's 2012 Big East Tournament sees the 2nd Tier of the Big East get their moment to shine.

Michigan Improves To 7-0 With 71-51 Win Over Marquette

5

Obviously, this makes for a good day for fans of the Maize & Blue, with the Michigan women's basketball team sweeping their Paradise Jam slate in addition to the football team beating some school from Ohio. But particularly noteworthy about today's game might be how they won: after a few relatively close wins against teams arguably inferior to Marquette, a 20-point win on a neutral court should be encouraging. The thing to really pay attention to in the boxscore is their turnover rate differential (check out the link above for WBB State's Four Factors graphic on the right hand side): Michigan turned the ball over 19% less often than Marquette in a slow game in which each possession really mattered. Mike has posted a brief - and less homerific - summary of the game here.

Bracketology Update: Even after getting dumped by Rutgers, things are looking pretty solid for Marquette. ESPN.com's Charlie Creme has them sliding down, but only to a 7 seed. That earns a matchup with current MAAC leader Marist. Currently the Golden Eagles are in a 4 way tie for 4th place in the Big East, but there are 6 teams with either 5 losses (like Marquette) or 6 losses. Winning both of their last two games would be a big help for Marquette, not just for NCAA seeding, but for Big East Tournament seeding as well.
