With the Big East men's basketball tournament set to begin today, here's a look at the TV schedule for today.
Connecticut takes on DePaul in today's first game, at noon on ESPN2, with the winner facing off against Georgetown. This matchup might be the least interesting in the whole tournament, given how few wins DePaul has so far against Big East competition. After that it's Seton Hall vs. Rutgers at 2:00, also on ESPN2, playing for the right to face St. John's in the second round.
Villanova and South Florida will square off at 7:00 on ESPNU, and the winner will face Cincinnati. South Florida is a bad team, but the Bulls have beaten ... well, nobody, actually. DePaul and Providence. Even with Villanova ending its season in a free-fall, and even after needing overtime to beat DePaul themselves a couple weeks back, the Wildcats should be able to take this one. In the final game of the evening, Marquette will take on Providence (9:00, ESPNU), and West Virginia fans will be watching, since the winner of the game will be the Mountaineers' opponent in their tournament debut on Wednesday.
