As one of the elite basketball conferences in the country, the Big East is sure to send multiple teams to the NCAA Tournament this season.   

If questions arise about the dominance of the conference, in 2006 a then-record eight Big East teams earned a tournament berth.  The conference tied the mark in 2008 and 2010 and in 2011, broke the record with 11 bids. No other conference has earned more than seven. 

It’s one thing to have teams make the tournament, but Big East teams are often successful as well.  There has been a representative from the Big East in the Final Four in four out of the last five seasons, and in the 2008-09 season, both Connecticut and Villanova made the Final Four.

Now it’s time to talk about the present. 

Every team in the conference has a winning record.  The only other conference that can say that is the ACC; however, the Big East is the only conference in which every team has at least 10 wins. 

With a conference as deep as this one, anything can happen on any given night, but here are the best bets for Big East teams that can make a run in March.
