The Syracuse Orange (25-6, 12-6 Big East) and the St. John's Red Storm (21-10, 12-6 Big East) face off this afternoon at Madison Square Garden in the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament.

The Orange crushed the Red Storm, 76-59, in this same arena almost two months ago, but much has changed between the two teams since that first matchup.

Both teams are now ranked in the Top 25 and have their sights firmly set on the NCAA tournament—but a Big East championship wouldn't hurt.
