BIG EAST TO COMMEMORATE THIRTY YEARS AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The 2012 BIG EAST Men's Basketball Championship Presented by American Eagle Outfitters will mark the 30th straight year it will be held on college basketball's biggest stage  - Madison Square Garden.  To celebrate, the conference is unveiling an interactive social media campaign to identify the 30 greatest teams, players and moments in championship history at MSG.
 
Identifying the top 10 moments, players and teams of the past 30 years is no easy task, but who better to weigh in on it than the Conference's devoted fans?
 
Starting Jan. 16, BIG EAST basketball fans are invited to join in the conversation online by visiting bigeast.org/garden30, via Facebook (www.facebook.com/bigeastconference) or Twitter (using hashtag #Garden30).
 
Fans who offer suggestions and help share the word will have a chance to win tickets to this year's tournament.  The 10 greatest in each category will be unveiled in a series of exclusive web videos on BIGEAST.org beginning Feb. 13.
