Ketia Swanier's Tyus Edney impersonation in the closing seconds of Saturday's game against DePaul ensured there will be something tangible on the line when No. 4 Rutgers visits No. 1 Connecticut.

But even if the Big East regular-season title weren't up for grabs Monday (ESPN2, 7 p.m. ET) at the XL Center in Hartford -- eight days before the same two teams could conceivably meet in the same stadium for the conference tournament title -- the game would be must-see viewing for basketball fans.
