East Region: Xavier Musketeers (6) vs. Marquette Golden Eagles (11) Fri. March 18, 2011 7:27 p.m. EST

The Big East Conference is about as tough as it gets in college basketball as there can be plenty of teams within the conference that can make it to the Big Dance every single season. This year there are eleven Big East teams in the 2011 NCAA Tournament: Pittsburgh Panthers (1, Southeast), Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2, Southwest), Syracuse Orangemen (3, East), UConn Huskies (3, West), St. John’s Red Storm (6, Southeast), Cincinnati Bearcats (6, West), West Virginia Mountaineers (5, East), Georgetown Hoyas (6, Southwest), Villanova Wildcats (9, East) and Marquette Golden Eagles (11, East).

Make this March Madness a winning one with guaranteed winning picks and predictions from SportsPicksKing!

With all this elite competition in the Big East Conference, the Marquette Golden Eagles (11) are battle tested every single year before coming into the NCAA Tournament and this season is no different. The first challenge for the Marquette Golden Eagles (11) will be against the Xavier Musketeers (6) on Friday night in Cleveland, Ohio.

Even though the Musketeers might be given the edge in this matchup, I believe that the Golden Eagles are much better all around basketball team and should pull off the potential upset here. With all the competition the Golden Eagles face all year long within their conference is enough to convince me that they will have to be beaten by a high seed in order to be knocked out of the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
