Eight of the teams in the inaugural event advanced to the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
Rutgers in the Big Ten is a monumental mistake that will have lasting effects on the school.
Stay with Double G Sports this week for continued coverage of the 2015 Big East Tournament.
Double G Sports polled some of the best Rutgers football writers on the internet to get their opinions on which players need to have big spring performances this year. In total, 31 players were mentioned by the six writers polled. To me, that says there are a lot of question marks heading into spring camp.
Players should decide the outcome of a game, not the officials. There is no guarantee Rutgers would have been able to tie or win this game, but make no mistake, they were robbed of an opportunity.
The Big East Tournament pits all the local teams against each other. Can Seton Hall or Rutgers pull off a couple upsets? Will St. John's prove it belongs in the conversation with the big boys of the Big East? Will Syracuse make one of it's usual deep runs?
If Rutgers has a chance to win this game and hold on to their slim bowl hopes, Tom Savage and/or Chas Dodd really need to step up and play a big game.
