2014 Big East Basketball Tournament



On July 1, 2013 the Big East as we have come to know it will be no more. Seven of the so-called “Catholic schools” will officially leave the conference to begin anew with a more basketball centered league. The remaining teams have formed a new conference, the American Athletic Conference. After some negotiations with other members of the current Big East, the new league will be allowed to keep the Big East name and continue to have its men’s basketball tournament at historic Madison Square Garden.


The new Big East will have the following membership: DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Villanova, Xavier, Butler, and Creighton. Although unconfirmed, rumors have it that St. Louis and Virginia Commonwealth (VCU) could possible join the league for the 2014-2015 season. Expected to be one of the top basketball leagues for the foreseeable future, along with other power conferences like the ACC, the “New” Big East has set itself up for numerous Final Four appearances in the future.
