Why not just move the ACC Tournament to Madison Square Garden and be done with it? In the holy name of football money, Big East basketball has been raided again. Likely starting in the 2013-14 season, the league will have quite a different look. And not a particularly good one.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Notre Dame (mostly so it can schedule five football games each year with ACC teams) will be joining Syracuse and Pittsburgh in the ACC. (The Notre Dame Conference stays intact for football.) No doubt, some major donor is about to write the exit check that will get ND out of the Big East by the start of the 2013-14 school year.
So, let’s assume ND will be in the ACC next year. What has gone down here? Let us review.
Teams across the Atlantic 10 are announcing their basketball schedules today. So far Temple and Saint Joseph's have released their slates.
The Owls have a number of big games. Their non-conference schedule includes neutral-site games against Duke at the Izod Center and Syracuse at Madison Square Garden. There's also a trip to famed Allen Fieldhouse to face Kansas.
That game and the season-ending home game against Virginia Commonwealth will be televised by CBS over-the-air. It is the first time since the 2001-02 season that Temple will appear on network television.
