Here’s your slate of Big East Tournament games for Thursday. All games are on ESPN.
Top-seeded Pitt takes on Connecticut at noon. You can check out Anson Whaley’s preview of the game here.
No. 4 Syracuse plays No. 5 St. John’s at 2:00 PM. Both teams are riding high on recent successes. Syracuse beat the Red Storm 76-59 back in January.
No. 2 Notre Dame takes on No. 7 Cincinnati at 7:00 PM. The two teams last met January 19 in a contest the Fighting Irish won, 66-58. Notre Dame looks very tough right now after winning 11 of its last 12 games, but keep in mind that the Irish lost to West Virginia and only narrowly beat Providence and UConn in that span, so they are beatable.
Finally, No. 3 Louisville plays No. 11 Marquette at 9:00 PM. The Cardinals won the two teams’ last meeting on January 15, 71-70.
