The Big East conference tournament will be held from March 7-10 at Madison Square Garden and should be one of the most competitive tournaments in all of college basketball.
The conference features just two teams ranked in the top 25 in Villanova (No. 3) and Xavier (No. 4) but is filled with teams capable of knocking off any opponent. Seton Hall and Creighton have both been ranked throughout the year and teams like Butler and Providence have taken down several ranked opponents and taken others to the wire. Then there's St. John's, which has defeated two straight top four opponents while sitting last in the conference.
With a conference chock-full of talented players like Jalen Brunson (Villanova), Trevon Bluiett (Xavier), Markus Howard (Marquette) and Shamorie Ponds (St. John's) capable of taking over a game, and the way this conference has beat up on each other, this tournament should be fun to watch.
