Gearing up for the Big East Tourney: News and Notes

With the BIG EAST Tournament kicking off this afternoon at The World's Most Famous Arena here are few media updates of note:

For Marquette alums in town for the BIG EAST Tournament, the Local Café West across from MSG is the Marquette bar for the week. MU will have dedicated space for pre/post-game gatherings. Additional details will be added to this URL throughout the week.

Later today Georgetown plays St. John's at MSG for the right to play Marquette tomorrow at 1pm CT. The Red Storm (15-16) play on their home court as the tournament's 13th seed while the Hoyas hit MSG ast the 12 seed.

Despite the four-game losing streak heading into post-season play, MU remains upbeat about the road ahead -- check out this AP feature on the team.
