NCAA Tournament berths may have been on the line Wednesday when the Big East Tournament began with first-round action.

St. John's (9-6-5) improved its chances with a shootout victory over Seton Hall.

Probably needing two victories to return to the NCAA Tournament, Cincinnati (9-9-1) pulled the day's big upset with a 2-0 win at Providence.

At least eight Big East teams should make the NCAA Tournament -- that's the number that ranked in the top 35 in last week's RPI index.

West Virginia (13-5-1) and South Florida (12-4-2) looked safe before their wins over Villanova (2-0) and Georgetown (4-0), respectively.

Connecticut (15-2-1), Notre Dame (10-3-5), DePaul (11-6-0) and Louisville (10-5-3), who all had first-round byes, have wrapped up NCAA Tournament berths.

The losses will leave Providence (9-7-2) and Villanova (10-9-1) with 10 days to fret whether they'll get at-large NCAA Tournament berths.

With losing records, Georgetown (7-11-1) and Seton Hall (7-11-1) have no postseason hopes.

WEDNESDAY'S STARS:
St. John's keeper Neal Kitson, made two saves  in the shootout session;

South Florida's German Simon Schoendorf had three assists;

West Virginia's Englishman Dan Stratford and Cincinnati's Kenny Anaba each contributed a goal and an assist.

GAME SUMMARIES:
Providence 0 Cincinnati 2

Goals:
UC-Baxter (Komitsch, Anaba) 34
UC-Anaba (Telting) 87
Att.: 212.

Saturday's quarterfinal meeting with UConn will be the first time the two have met in postseason since the Huskies down USF 1-0 in the conference championship game in 2005.  Connecticut handed the Bulls their only home loss this year, as USF went 8-1-0 at the USF Soccer Stadium in 2007.
