Big East Tournament bracket: Full TV schedule, scores, results for 2023 basketball tournament

By | March 10, 2023

The Big East Tournament always delivers the madness associated with March. This year should be no different.

The season did play out differently than many expected, with Marquette soaring to a comfortable regular season title and Villanova limping along to the program’s worst finish in more than a decade.

St. John’s and Butler both fell short of expectations in what they hoped would be a resurgent season, while Seton Hall couldn’t put it all together in year one under Shaheen Holloway.

Toward the top of the conference, Xavier found new life in Sean Miller’s second stint as coach. UConn rose to No. 2 in the nation in December and has regained its footing after a tough start to Big East play. Creighton and Providence both had their share of ups and downs but are poised for an NCAA Tournament bid.

DePaul and Georgetown were relegated to the basement again, and the Hoyas might be forced to make a tough decision on Patrick Ewing once the week is done.
