SEC Vs. Big East

The Southeastern Conference will participate in a men's basketball showcase event involving the Big East Conference beginning in December, 2007. The agreement is for a three-year cycle with four games each year. Four SEC and four Big East teams will participate in each year with all 12 SEC teams participating over the three-year term.

Match-ups will be determined at a later date. Alabama could play in any one of the three years of the event.

The games will be played on December 5 and 6 in 2007, December 10 and 11 in 2008, and December 9 and 10 in 2009.

Two neutral sites–one in SEC territory and one Big East site–will host two games each year. All games will be televised by either ESPN or ESPN2.
