The teams might have changed over the years, but the arena hasn’t.
Once again the famous Madison Square Garden is the site of the Big East Tournament, which gets underway on Wednesday.
Gone are long-time conference mainstays Syracuse, UConn and Pitt. But the recent additions of Butler and Xavier – along with holdovers like Villanova, Georgetown and St. John’s – have kept the league competitive.
