Every year the Big East Tournament is a special time for me.  Since my first Big East Tournament when I saw Patrick Ewing, Michael Jackson, and David Wingate shut down Chris Mullin, Mark Jackson, and Walter Berry in the “Sweater Game” I have loved coming to Madison Square Garden to see the Big East Tournament.  In that 1985 game Georgetown was the defending national champion, and had fought with St. John’s all year for the #1 ranking in the nation. 

There is something truly magical about spending a day in Madison Square Garden watching a Big East Tournament doubleheader.  For those of you wanting to relive your college experience there is nothing like spending a few days with fellow Georgetown alumni, watching some great college basketball.

This has indeed been an exciting year watching the Hoyas.  The China trip has become historic.  The Hoyas then began to surprise everyone in Maui as they put a scare in Kansas, and downed the Memphis Tigers.  Now Georgetown looks to gain some momentum for the NCAA tournament as the Big East Tournament’s 30th year at Madison Square Garden begins. 

I recently attended a NY Knick game at MSG and witnessed “Linsanity” for myself.  As I walked the streets of Chinatown last weekend and  saw the many people playing basketball hoping to be the next Jeremy Lin it reminded me of my Georgetown days in Village A dreaming of serving up the alley-oop to Patrick Ewing

For Hoya Fans around the world please follow our Hoya Hoop Club Communication Team’s unprecedented coverage of the 2012 Big East Tournament.  I will be blogging during the tournament, and we will have frequent updates on the HHC Facebook Page, and Twitter Feed.  Let’s make the Garden rock with the sounds of Hoya Saxa!  We are Georgetown!
