Big East football schools will get almost all of a $110 million pot in a deal that will allow seven departing basketball schools to keep the name Big East and start playing in their own conference next season, a person familiar with the negotiations says. The basketball schools, which include Georgetown, St. John's, Villanova, Seton Hall, Providence, Marquette and DePaul, will receive $10 million, keep the conference name and the right to play their conference tournament at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK, N. Y. - The regular season of men's college basketball ends on a high note for Marquette University.
The Golden Eagles defeated St. John's at Madison Square Garden Saturday afternoon in overtime, 69-67.
It's quite an accomplishment from a team that had a preseason pick of seventh place.
Fans say it was one of the most memorable seasons in the school's rich basketball history.
