Big East Basketball Power Rankings Week 16

Welcome to penultimate edition of the 2010-2011 Big East Power Rankings. The rules are simple, we've invited the SB Nation (or friend of SB Nation) blog for each team to cast a vote. They rank the teams from one to 16 and then we bring you the results. Enjoy.

There are six Big East teams with seven-losses and that makes ranking everyone a bit difficult, to say the least. There is a general consensus on the top of the conference, with Pitt collecting every first place vote (again). Notre Dame, Louisville, St. John's and Syracuse follow them, generally in that order. There is consensus for the basement too. DePaul is the worst team and South Florida, Providence, Rutgers and Seton Hall are all marginally better than the team that came before them.

But wow is that middle a mess. Georgetown is undoubtedly hurt by the loss of Chris Wright. Marquette has a tough time winning games on the road, UConn is terribly inconsistent, no one can get a read on Cincinnati or West Virginia and Villanova has been playing some hilariously terrible basketball. Good luck sorting it all out.

Not much in the way of Homer of the Week candidates this week. I suspect that's because anyone who'd be tempted to overrate their team is already high enough that it becomes difficult and everyone else is too depressed to try. Still, Anonymous Eagle acted like a homer by proxy, voting St. John's No. 2. Hater of the Week goes to Casual Hoya, who dropped Syracuse to 7th. That's not too far off from the margin, but it's pretty clear, at least at this point, that Syracuse should be above the 7-loss fray in the middle of the conference. I doubt Casual Hoya will be upset for being tarred as a Syracuse-hater though.
