The Big East Tournament continues today at Madison Square Garden with four games on tap. The marquee matchup of the round could be the first game of the day, pitting the ninth seeded UConn Huskies against the Western Virginia Mountaineers. The Huskies, led by Aurora native Ryan Boatright, defeated DePaul on Tuesday to end the Blue Demons' season.
Also of note locally: Seton Hall will take on Louisville, a team which features a Chicago native in freshman Wayne Blackshear. Blackshear was thought to miss the entire season after he tore his labrum in November, but the small forward worked his way back into action and played 13 minutes in the Cardinals' loss to Syracuse on Saturday.
