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

So what will we see from the conference this upcoming season? 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.
