Spotlight shines on Big East at MSG
This was supposed to be the down year for the Big East Conference. After ascending ridiculous highs last season -- seven NCAA bids, three No. 1 seeds -- the league was supposed to fall flat in the top team department and even flatter in the drama department.
Yeah, how's that theory working out?
The Big East could easily surpass last season's output with eight bids, and some people can make a stretched case for nine.
