This almost passes for basketball season.

The Big East was fairly active in basketball action today. Georgetown played a secret scrimmage and Butler and Seton Hall each had exhibition games. Here's

Georgetown played Pitt pretty well apparently. Pitt only lost one piece from a young team that went 19-15 last year, so I'd suspect they're going to have a solid tournament resume this year. Unsurprisingly, D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera was the big cog in the Georgetown machine.

Seton Hall played a DIII school called Baruch College... and narrowly escaped with the win.

It's not a shock that Isaiah Whitehead has been assigned - likely by himself - the role of scoring half the team's points. It's more surprising and less encouraging that the Pirates needed every bit of it to escape a lower division school. Baruch show 12-18 from deep and Seton Hall outrebounded them 37-33. Khadeen Carrington had 15/3/6 but turned it over 5 times.

Butler did what you're supposed to do in situations like this one and opened up a can on Taylor University.

Tyler Wideman had 11 boards, Kellen Dunham and Roosevelt Jones each had 14 points, and new PG Tyler Lewis posted 11/5/1. Butler ran away with the game despite shooting just 5-19 from behind the arc.
