Re: 2010/2011 UC Basketball official thread
If UC played a top 20 non conference schedule, it would of taken 10 Big East wins to make the tournament. UC did play a really bad non conference schedule so it'll take 11-12 Big East wins to make the tournament.
My point is yes they have to do some extra work, but not a ton, win 1 or 2 more games in league play and they are in. When your in a power 6 conference, you make your case in conference play.
