[BIG EAST] No 14 Georgetown and No. 15 Marquette captured the Big East regular-season division titles and No. 1 seeds in the 10-team league tournament.
Georgetown captured its first regular-season title, winning the National Division and earning the No. 1 seed. The Hoyas were tied with No. 24 Notre Dame atop the division with 25 points, but won the head-to-head tiebreaker thanks to a 2-0 win over the Irish on Oct. 12.

Sophomore Daphne Corboz leads Georgetown with league-highs of 38 points and 16 goals. The Hoyas earned a bye to the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament, where they will host the Villanova-DePaul winner on Oct. 28.
Unbeaten in its last 11 games, Marquette won its fourth straight American Division crown to earn a bye to the quarterfinals against the UConn-Rutgers winner on Sunday.
Notre Dame, which will host American Division No. 3 seed Syracuse Sunday, has captured 11 Big East championships but is looking for its first tournament title since 2009. USF is the No. 2 seed from the American Division and will host National Division No. 3 seed Louisville on Sunday.
The Villanova-DePaul and Connecticut-Rutgers games will be played Thursday.
