For the 2013-14 season the new Big East will consist of ten teams.
The 10 members will be the Catholic 7 schools that left the Big East – DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John’s and Villanova – plus Butler and Xavier of the Atlantic 10 and Creighton of the Missouri Valley.
According to ESPN.com, multiple coaches from the new league have stated the new Big East would play an 18-game, round-robin schedule in 2013-14.
The 2014 Big East Tournament will still be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Based at the Garden since the early 1980’s, the Big East Tournament has traditionally been one of the top conference tournaments in the country.
