NEW YORK - For 29 years, the BIG EAST Championship Presented by American Eagle Outfitters has been one of the bright spots on the New York City sporting calendar.
This weekend, it will be the brightest. Literally.
Just blocks away from Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building - one of the world's most recognizable structures, will be bathed in the colors of the BIG EAST in celebration of the college basketball tournament that has come to be synergetic with New York City.
Beginning at sunset Friday, and continuing through the weekend, the top of the Empire State Building will be illuminated by the three colors of the BIG EAST's official logo - red, blue and white in descending order.
