The greatest conference tournament of all time, at one of the most storied venues in all of sports, begins today at noon with DePaul vs. South Florida.
Now, with the size of the Big East Conference and the double-byes instituted to get all teams into tournament play, we have to wait until Thursday to see the top four teams (Syracuse, Nova, Pitt and WVU). But because of the inconsistency that UConn showed this season, you can at least catch them in action in the first round today at 2 p.m. (vs. St. John’s). And don’t forget to watch Georgetown take on the winner of today’s noon match-up tomorrow at 12 p.m.
Though I can’t (and won’t) predict the outcome, you only need to look to last year’s ‘Cuse/UConn six-OT all-nighter to know that this is going to be a GREAT week.
