It was over 33 years ago to the day, on February 29th, 1980, when Jim Boeheim stepped onto the Providence Civic Center floor to coach his first Big East Tournament game. His Syracuse Orange were coming off a heartbreaking 52-50 loss to Georgetown in their last game at Manley Field House, but that didn’t stop his team from toppling Connecticut 92-61 to reach the finals. While Syracuse fell short of the Hoyas again in the championship, they went on to receive a one-seed in the NCAA Tournament and advance to the Round of Eight.

For one final time, storied rivalries will be played out at Madison Square Garden starting Tuesday night. No longer will we see overtime thrillers between Syracuse and Connecticut, or Buzz Williams yelling in the face of an official as Pittsburgh gives him the business.
