FROM THE "SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE" FILES:

Marquette has dropped three games in a row and, you'll no doubt recall, hasn't won a Big East Tournament game in two years, losing to Louisville in 2012 (after getting a double bye) and getting picked off by the hated Irish in 2013 (after, again, getting a double bye). For its part, Xavier limps into the Garden having lost two in a row (and 3 of 5, and 4 of 7) and is without the services of center Matt Stainbrook. One of those trends is getting bucked tonight. Let's hope it's ours.



THIS IS GOOD BEER. BOTTOMS UP.

Nothing goes with Big East basketball like the Champagne of Beers: as per usual, tonight's Big East Tournament Pint Touch is Miller High Life.
