The final Big East tournament experience as we know it came to a close this weekend, stirring emotions for college basketball enthusiasts across the country. Memories of Ewing, Carmelo and Kemba became entrenched as part of the annual event's legacy at Madison Square Garden, which has hosted the tourney since 1983.

Other programs plummeted on the postseason stage, some wrapping up the season for good. With another conference tournament in the books and Selection Sunday tomorrow, let's assess who delivered in Manhattan along with those left scratching their heads in the wake of disappointing displays.
