It's not looking good for today. Currently UC sits at ninth in the Big East standings with the Big East likely getting nine teams into the tourney. The Notre Dame game will be huge to generate seperation between them and another Big East bubble team. With UC having the more difficult stretch of games this month than Notre Dame and Georgetown the head-to-head match ups will be very important. Beat both of those teams (G'town for the second time) and you're probably in. Lose and you're out.
