Sights and sounds from Tuesday's Big East media day

  The Big East held its annual media day in New York City at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.

The 2015-16 campaign was a success for the Big East conference, as it boasted five NCAA tournament bids and the eventual national champion in Villanova.

Well, before the programs take to the hardwood inside Madison Square Garden for the 35th consecutive year in early March for their conference tournament, they all congregated Tuesday at the "World's Most Famous Arena" for the Big East's annual media day.
