What to watch for as the Big East gets set for tip-off at its end-of-the-year tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The Favorite - Syracuse

No one in the Big East combines raw ability with length and athleticism like the Orange do.

The Dark horse - Cincinnati

The Bearcats have the guards to make a run and create mismatches with their small lineup.

Knocked out early - Notre Dame

Had a big win over SU, but ND relies too much on the long ball. If they're not falling the Irish will have a short stay in New York City.

A last second West Virginia missed 3-point attempt proved to be the difference in the Dome on Saturday.

With No. 4 Syracuse’s depth and balance, it seems a different player steps up each game. Saturday, it was Brandon Triche’s turn. The junior guard scored 18 points, including two game-winning free throws with about 88 seconds remaining in the game. Despite rebounding issues and some late-game drama, the Orange (22-1, 9-1) were able to escape with a 63-61 victory over West Virginia (15-7, 5-4) in front of 28,740 fans at the Carrier Dome on Saturday.

The duo sparked what may have been Syracuse’s best half of the season, and helped the Orange to a 63-52 win over West Virginia.

The East Regional final saw the last Big East team remaining advance to the Final Four behind the will and smarts of the head coach and gritty point guard.

Bob Huggins will take your tired, your poor, and your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
