Release: Big East Basketball Postseason Performance Notes

The Big East released a memo today wrapping up the men's basketball season as well as defending the league's postseason performance over the past few years. Of note in the release:

  • Connecticut’s appearance in the NCAA Final Four gives the BIG EAST four Final Four teams in the past three seasons (Connecticut and Villanova in 2009, West Virginia in 2010, Connecticut in 2011).
  • The BIG EAST has placed four different schools (Connecticut, Georgetown, Villanova, West Virginia) in the Final Four in the past five seasons. No other conference has had more than two schools reach the Final Four since 2007.
  • This year’s Connecticut team is the 17th BIG EAST entrant in the Final Four in the conference’s 32-year history.
  • The BIG EAST is the only conference to have placed a team in each NCAA Elite Eight since 2002.
