With the Big East season coming to a close this week, it's easy to see who played up to expectations and who had down years.
Starting locally, the Temple Owls have to consider this season a disappointment, but something that was also expected. The Owls were coming into the conference knowing they would take some lumps and did exactly that, but can now move into the future in better shape.
Atop the standings, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights have to be thrilled and somewhat surprised. Unranked coming into the year, most thought Rutgers would finish in the middle of he pack. Instead, it finds itself playing the Louisville Cardinals for the conference title.
Here are the full Big East standings:
|Rutger Scarlet Knights||5-1||9-2|
|South Florida Bulls||1-5||3-8|
