48 More Impact Transfers: Updated Big East and National Team Rankings

Good catches all, especially on Creighton who does plunge out of the tournament. Here is the national update and then where the Big East teams rank now.


Big East Team Top 8 Value Nat'l
Villanova 47.51 2
Marquette 33.13 23

St. John's 28.52 45
Providence 27.99 49
Xavier 27.7 51
Butler 27.36 54

Creighton 22.35 80
Georgetown 21.86 86

Seton Hall 20.07 105

DePaul 19.42 117

I last wrote here about Joe Cremo's visit to Villanova - and not only did he sign there but Denzil Mahoney (update, sits out next season) signed with Creighton several days later to get the Big East the top two Value Add pick-ups of the last several weeks. After business travel kept me from home for 26 of 28 consecutive days I finally returned to make hundreds of updates to the Value Add google doc and I will hope to have www.valueaddbasketball.com updated to correspond during the 3-day weekend.

Creighton's pick-up of Mahoney will move their projection ahead of Marquette to leave us third in the Big East - but Villanova and Creighton are waiting to see if players go to the NBA while Marquette is set. The following are the 48 players worth at least 2 more points per game who signed and/or left teams - or at least appear to be headed to a team if so noted - since Marquette completed its roster.

First - an insert of changes based on BrewCity and TAMU McEwen Updates
