Let’s start with IF UConn defeats South Florida Saturday and IF No. 2 Notre Dame defeats Providence Saturday … Not only could the Huskies earn a share of their 20th Big East regular season championship with a win over the Irish at Purcell Pavilion Monday night, but they could also earn the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament by virtue of the tiebreaker.
Here is how it works: UConn played Marquette twice. Notre Dame played Providence twice. The decisive tiebreaker will be UConn’s two wins over Marquette (Notre Dame has one) and the fact that the Golden Eagles finished ahead of Providence in the Big East standings.
