Geno Auriemma waxing nostalgic about the good old days of the Big East:
“It’s nostalgic because I can remember how the conference would rotate [tournament sites], just like when I was in Catholic school and everything had to be fair. Everyone had a chance to host the tournament whether your place sat 2,500 or 10,000 – everyone had a chance. But it was small-time, unlike anything we have today.
“Back then, if you were to have said to all those schools, “Hey, for a whole bunch of years  you are going to have this tournament in Hartford, and there’s going to be 10 or 11,000 people there and ESPN is going to televise it the semifinals and finals they would have said you are out of your mind.
“Well, here we are today and I would like to think we had a lot to do with it. But now it’s over and it’s time to start again.
