    Big East basketball schools & realignment

    BE fading in basketball relevance was unthinkable even as recently as two years ago.

    Doyle: Big East's basketball schools are in danger of being run over by realignment

    I expect jumping to/merging with A-10 at some point.

    The ACC dealt the bb only Catholic schools a death blow taking ND away from them. PC, Nova, Gtown, Johns Marquette are all superior progams to ND in hoop too. With Notre Dame those schools could have created their own Catholic hoop conference to get away from crap like ECU and Tulane, they'd just have added a couple A10 teams like LaSalle Bonnies Duquense etc. Hopefully those schools still do I am not sure occasionally seeing Cinci, Houston, or Memphis is worth it for them. A Catholic only conference led by the Big East powers would be pretty cool.

    Syracuse is the other important BE loss in hoops because Madison Square Garden goes with the Cuse for the site for the conference tournament :). Nice to see Uconn put in their place by all this.
