Big East – Highlight of Selection Sunday

If you include No. 3 seeds Syracuse and Villanova, the Big East has five of the top 12 seeded teams in the tournament. 

Now we all know that this stuff means absolutely nothing once the tournament starts (there’s a reason it’s called March Madness… any team can win or lose at ANY time), but it is interesting to note the swing back to the Big East this year after the ACC and other major conferences have dominated the top positions in recent years.
