I mentioned in the Friday Look Ahead that the Big East was 35-0, but I thought for sure the league would suffer its first loss Friday. It still might, I guess. But it won't be where I thought it would be, which is to say in the Northern Iowa-DePaul game.

Final score: DePaul 60, Northern Iowa 52.

So the team picked last in the Big East just beat the team picked first in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Very nice, Jerry Wainwright.

You moved the Big East to 36-0.

Now let's see if Villanova can make it 37-0.

DePaul beats projected MVC champ

I am always an ardent supporter of more "mid-major"/"non-BCS" teams at tournament time, but this game wont exactly be used to help that argument. Not a good loss (it seems, at this point) for N. Iowa
