The Big East men’s basketball tournament returns to Madison Square Garden on Wednesday afternoon and runs through Saturday night as 11 teams will battle for supremacy and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament later this month.
The Providence Friars earned the regular season Big East title for the first time in program history. From top to bottom, the conference is relatively evenly matched, though so it’s not like Providence is just going to steamroll its way through the rest of the league and cut down the nets. The Friars (+500) aren’t even the favorites to win it all. Villanova (+150) and UConn (+330) both have better odds than the regular season title holders to win it all at MSG.
The entirety of the conference tournament can be seen on the Fox family of networks. The opening round through the semifinals can all be seen on FS1, while the championship game will air on Fox on Saturday night.
Live streaming the Big East Tournament on Fox and FS1 will require a cable login. If you don’t have a cable login to access the Fox Sports App, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream it.
