Wednesday at the Garden

Nothing memorable on the first day of the Big East tournament except perhaps the following banter:

Raftery: The 2-3 Zone of Syracuse has not been quite as effective this year as in years past.

McDonough: Syracuse has the 3rd best FG percentage defense in the country.

Raftery: You know I’m not that big on numbers.

McDonough: Or facts.

Bilas: (laughs)

McDonough: I know what you mean though. Syracuse does not quite have the size as in years past. So maybe this year's Syracuse defense has not been as effective, non-statistically speaking.
