Four Big East teams enter the final day of the regular season Saturday knowing their seeding for next week's conference tournament at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Villanova? Not so lucky.
Because of the incredible logjam in the middle of the Big East standings - one game separates fourth place from eighth place, and sixth place from 11th place - there is no way of knowing where the Wildcats will wind up as they enter Saturday's game at No. 4 Pittsburgh.
This much is known: A Villanova loss will force the Wildcats (21-9, 9-8 Big East) into a first-round tournament game on Tuesday, either at 7 or 9:30 p.m. Applying the conference tiebreakers, the Cats are 10th in the seeding order, behind Connecticut and ahead of Marquette, the teams that also are 9-8.
