The Number 19 team in the current Coach's Poll is Villanova.
The Number 11 team in the Big East standings is Villanova.

While a Big East team may not win the NCAA championship, it is undeniable that the Big East is the dominant college basketball conference.

Yep, great conference!

Haha, call me six years ago, when a Big East team last participated in the championship game.

Pure domination by the Big Least in the tournament again this year.

Let's see......

ACC had 4 teams in the tourney, 3 advance to the Sweet 16......

Big East had 11 teams in the tournament, 2 advance to the Sweet 16.....

If it weren't for two games being between two Big East teams, who knows? Maybe 0 teams advance to the Sweet 16!

O.V.E.R.R.A.T.E.D!!! EVERY YEAR!

Umm, no. It isn't. Tell the Big East to kiss my A-C-C.

The worst game ever that no one will remember. More fans will talk about how Butler lost to duke. The big least cheaters. JC will leave and uCon will remove the banners in another year.

Welcome new guy. So which team of yours did UConn knock outta The Tourney?

I guess now that Syracuse, Pitt and probably UConn are going to be in the ACC, the ACC will become a much weaker league, kiss my Orange, Patnthers and Huskies, Finally Duke and UNC will have to play real basketball teams in the regular season, let's see how that works out for them.

Sure...the Big 10 got all the hype, but does it really surprise anyone that the Big East has two teams in the Final Four, both of whom will probably be the favorites in the semi-finals.

While we're at it, the Big East women have three teams in the Elite Eight, two of which, Notre Dame and UCONN, are the clear favorites to win the title.

Surprise, Surprise....the Big East wins both the Men's and Women's basketball titles.

What a fitting end to the greatest college basketball conference that ever existed.

BIG EAST!
