Big East Conference Tournament Predictions 2023

The oddsmakers may like Connecticut, but Marquette is the top seed, followed by Xavier. Those two teams are averaging 80.5 and 82.3 points per game, respectively, to lead the Big East. The Golden Eagles and Musketeers also lead the conference in field goal percentage, hitting between 49.5% and 50% of their shots from the floor. The two teams split a pair of very close games during the regular season, and both teams went 3-1 vs Providence and Creighton.

With Marquette leading the league in steals and assist-to-turnover ratio, they are a slight favorite in a tight race at the top for the conference championship. That said, we prefer Xavier’s tempo and top-10 adjusted efficiency on offense, field goal shooting, and 3-pointers.
