Big East Basketball Power Rankings 2/6: Pitt is charging from behind

Welcome to the Big East Basketball Power Rankings. Every week from now through the end of the regular season the editors of SB Nation's Big East blogs will cast their vote in an attempt to measure the current state of the Big East. The results are below. This feature runs on Mondays, in theory.

Once again there is no question about the top team in the league -- Syracuse has a stranglehold on the No. 1 spot and with Fab Melo back in the fold its tough to picture the Orange slipping very far. Georgetown took a strong hold on the second spot, and Marquette slipped to third somehow staying above Notre Dame despite getting pounded by the Irish 76-59.

But the team that really interests me is Pittsburgh. They were 16th two weeks ago, but then Travon Woodall returned from injury and the Panthers have caught fire. Pico from Rumble in the Garden said it was like watching an NBA team pull off a lopsided mid-season trade, and he's not wrong.

Homer of the Week No one was blatant enough to earn this, though Voodoo Five and Cardiac Hill both came dangerously close by listing their teams at 8. Still, those are respectable rankings confirmed by other voters, but it all feels a bit fishy to me. Hater of the Week goes to anyone who thinks Marquette should be ranked higher than Notre Dame. To be fair to Casual Hoya and On The Banks, they submitted their ballots early this week so they have an excuse. No one else does.

We'll see you back here next week.
