Per Zach B
Big East announces they set record in five years of reformatted league in tournament attendance. #bigeasthoops

The Big East finished the season ranked #2 in RPI. Another very impressive year for our conference. The conference as a whole seems to be on the upswing despite the predicted downfall once we broke off.

Big East coaches should use videos of the BE Tournament to recruit. Tough to top the energy and excitement.

Watching the AAC and A10 finals makes it hard to understand why a kid with an opportunity to play at a BE school would ever choose to play in those conferences.

If kid is borderline, more playing time in AAC or A10 may be more appealing.

After their report about “ Conflict of Interest” with Wintrust Bank, I’m not surprised. Depaul is a really good school in a major city with plenty of B-ball talent.

They deserve better.

Much of this sounds very familiar from the lack of success of former St. John's A.D.'s in the hiring of coaches. Both schools have suffered from the unfair competition of Power 5 schools that have the resources and behind the scenes backers and brokers to buy players. The 1 n done rule needs to be abolished and hopefully the ongoing FBI investigation takes down some of the cheaters.

@John_Fanta
The 2018 @BIGEAST Tournament is @FOXSports' most-watched conference tournament ever. The 2018 average is up an impressive +21% over last year’s tournament. #BEtourney Championship Game between Providence and Villanova averaged 1,491,000 viewers on FOX.

In addition to attendance and tv viewer increases six bids two years in a row must put a lot of money in the league members pockets. Does anybody have any idea how much?
