The opening round of the Big East Tournament is in the books and that means it is officially time for the top seeds in the posteason to take the court at Madison Square Garden.

There are four games on Thursday at the world’s most famous arena, including a matchup for Georgetown on short rest against top-seed Villanova to get things started. The Wildcats, who wrapped up the regular season as the No. 3 squad in the AP Poll, are led by one of the best backcourts in the entire country and a whole slew of postseason expectations.

Don’t forget about Xavier or Seton Hall either. The two teams, who faced off late during the regular season with the Pirates grabbing a dramatic upset win, come into the Big East Tournament with plenty of momentum and their eyes on a conference title.

Play begins at 12 p.m. ET and is being broadcast on Fox Sports 1, but we’ll keep you updated with results right here as well, so make sure to check back often.
