We've loved the Big East conference for basketball since its inception, but it's been getting harder and harder to remember who is in or out when it comes to hoops.
By the time the 2013-14 season tips off, at least 23 colleges will be able to say they have played Big East basketball. And that doesn't even include Temple if it decides to join the mix in the next 15 minutes or so. Ugh!
Below are the original school in the conference and moves made to the men's basketball version of the league (*timing tentative):
|| Boston College, Connecticut, Georgetown,
Providence, Seton Hall, St. John's, Syracuse
|1995-96||Notre Dame, Rutgers, West Virginia||—|
|2004-05||—||Miami (Fla.), Virginia Tech|
|| Cincinnati, DePaul, Louisville,
Marquette, South Florida
| Boston College
|2012-13||—||*Pittsburgh, *Syracuse, West Virginia|
|| Central Florida, Houston,
Memphis, Southern Methodist
