Despite a long impressive career, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw has never won a Big East tournament championship. This could be her last chance with the top-seeded Fighting Irish possibly leaving the ever-changing conference as soon as July.
The Big East football and basketball schools are working toward finalizing a divorce that could lead Notre Dame to hasten its move to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Or maybe the Irish will compete for a season with the basketball schools in a conference that is expected to keep the name Big East.
Regardless, this Big East tournament, which begins Friday in Hartford, Conn., will be the last of its kind.
