  • Congratulations to Connecticut's Woman's Basketball Team for winning the BIG EAST Championship Game. The Huskies defeated 10th ranked Notre Dame 73-64 to win their fourth straight BIG EAST Championship.

  • On the first day of the men's tournament, Alex from Villanova won free AE jeans for a year for making a half court shot in our AE Challenge at the Villanova vs. USF game. In an extremely close game, Villanova lost 69-70 to USF.

  • Get your glasses ready - all 15 of the men's games are being shot and broadcast in 3D on ESPN 3D! This marks the first time an entire conference tournament is being offered in 3D.
