This might not be the Big East Championship that you've grown used to over the years, but plenty will be on the line this week at Madison Square Garden.
Villanova is looking to lock up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, Creighton is also playing for seeding and Xavier, Providence and St. John's are just trying to play their way into the dance.
After a doubleheader on Wednesday night to set the table, Thursday's quarterfinals should be full of bracket implications. A loss from Villanova on Thursday afternoon would be a huge hit to the Wildcats' one-seed hopes. They'll face either Seton Hall or Butler, two teams that are below .500 on the season.
Then, Providence meets St. John's in what could be an NCAA Tournament elimination game. The loser will have a tough time sneaking into the field, while the winner will likely set itself up for a big opportunity against Villanova in the semifinals.
Xavier might be safe for right now, but a loss to Marquette Thursday night would hurt. The Musketeers have already lost two in a row, but own wins over Creighton, Cincinnati and Tennessee.
