Still Don't Think Big East is the Best Conference?

Winning the Big East tournament is a ticket to the Final Four. Louisville is the third straight conference tourney champ to advance that far; West Virginia in 2010 and, as you may recall, UConn last year both did so as well.

A few other notes, courtesy of the Big East Conference:

*** A Big East team has reached the Final Four 18 times in the conference's 33-year history.

*** The Big East has placed six teams in the Final Four in the past seven years. Five different schools have reached the Final Four in that time.

*** The Big East is the only conference to send at least one team to the Elite Eight in every year since 2002. Louisville and Syracuse did so this year.

*** Big East teams are a combined 14-7 in this year's tournament and 18-8 in the postseason.

*** Pitt plays the first game in the best-of-three CBI championship round tonight at Washington State. Game 2 is in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, with a deciding game in Pittsburgh on Friday, if necessary.
