Surprising Stat

Tonight will be only the sixth time that two Big East teams have ever met in the NCAA tournament. Tomorrow's Syracuse-Marquette match-up, of course, will be the seventh.

It's also the earliest two Big East teams have met. The others:

St. John's-Georgetown, 1985 Final Four
Villanova-Georgetown, 1985 NCAA final
Providence-Georgetown, 1987 Elite Eight
Providence-Syracuse, 1987 Final Four
Pittsburgh-Villanova, 2009 Elite Eight
