The Big East Tournament is down to four after Thursday's quarterfinals chipped down the field once more. Three of the top four seeds survived to advance to the semifinals, but one team is notably missing despite playing its first game of the tournament on Thursday.
Marquette is the missing team after its loss to Louisville. The Cardinals seem to be peaking at the right time, and are now just two wins away from the auto-bid. They'll face Notre Dame on Friday night after the Irish won an incredibly ugly game over South Florida that we should probably erase from all our memories.
Syracuse also stayed alive with a win on Thursday, moving into the semifinals and, potentially, one step closer to a No. 1 seed. The Orange will face Cincinnati, winners of a double-overtime thriller over Georgetown on Thursday afternoon.
