The BIG EAST Conference has announced its home and way opponents for the 2003-04 season.
The BIG EAST no longer has a two-team division setup, instead the league standings will be comprised of one 14-team setup. Each team will play a 16-game conference schedule, in which every team will play each other at least once. In addition, each school will play three others on a home-and-home basis.

Around Big East
When ACC university presidents held two votes in mid-May -- one to approve expanding from nine to 12 teams, and another to decide with which schools they wanted to enter formal discussions -- adding three teams seemed like a foregone conclusion.
Nearly six weeks and four conference calls later, though, the situation is considerably less clear as the presidents prepare to reconvene today.
ACC Presidents to Meet Again Today
A vote on ACC expansion could come today, though if it does, it remains unclear which proposal would be voted on.
League officials worked Monday to coordinate a conference call among school presidents and chancellors to expedite the process, which for practical purposes faces a June 30 deadline. The call also could happen Wednesday.
Vote looming for multiple scenarios
Rutgers University athletic director Robert Mulcahy confirmed Monday he has made a proposal that wouldn't try to prevent the Atlantic Coast Conference from adding the University of Miami as long as the ACC doesn't try to lure any more Big East schools in the next few years.
In a telephone interview, Mulcahy said under his proposal five Big East football schools would drop their lawsuit against the ACC, UM and Boston College if the ACC doesn't add any Big East schools, other than Miami, in the ``next four or five years.''
Rutgers: No suit if only UM leaves
Presidents and chancellors of the nine Atlantic Coast Conference universities are scheduled to hold their fifth teleconference in two weeks this afternoon amid signs support might be growing within both leagues for an expansion compromise that would send only Miami (Fla.) from the Big East to the ACC.
Compromise could make Miami lone new team in ACC
Miami might be willing to join the Atlantic Coast Conference alone, but the Hurricanes would find it difficult to accept a three-team expansion proposal that doesn't include Boston College and Syracuse, sources told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Monday.
By the time the ACC conducts its fifth teleconference today, Miami's position will have been relayed to a conference president and possibly Commissioner John Swofford.
Hurricanes might go it alone
A Connecticut judge will hear preliminary arguments Thursday in the lawsuit filed by five Big East Conference schools that aims to keep other members of their league from defecting to the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Lawyers yesterday said Connecticut Superior Court Judge Samuel Sferrazza, who sits in Vernon, will consider moving the lawsuit to the state's complex case division in Waterbury.
Thursday Pa. attorney general backs case against ACC
Pennsylvania Attorney General Mike Fisher announced yesterday that his office would join the lawsuit filed by the Big East Conference against the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"My office supports the Big East schools in trying to stop the ACC from pilfering its members and weakening the conference," Fisher said. "The University of Pittsburgh potentially could lose millions of dollars in revenues if the ACC were allowed to dismember the Big East. That loss could severely impact Pitt's sports and academic programs and hurt the taxpayers of Pennsylvania."

The summer is usually the slowest time for sports programming because there is nothing on the tube except for Major League Baseball, golf and the NASCAR race of the week.
But the ACC-Big East expansion tug of war may give programmers a chance to smile this summer. The way it is playing out, the expansion talks may be the best thing to happen to cable programming in recent memory because it has become bigger than sports.
Politics to play part in ACC expansion
Rutgers has floated a compromise plan that would allow Miami to join the expanding Atlantic Coast Conference as long as ACC officials agree to end their bid to add other Big East schools.
Rutgers AD proposal: Only Miami would jump to ACC
With his football program and conference in danger of withering on the vine, Rutgers athletic director Robert Mulcahy hopes a compromise he has proposed will bring about a resolution in the Big East-Atlantic Coast Conference expansion imbroglio.
Rutgers has offer for ACC
For what could be the final time, the Big East Conference released a basketball schedule that accounts for 14 teams playing in one big happy division.
The Big East planned months ago to switch from a two-division alignment, which had been in place since Virginia Tech's admission in 2000, to a single-division format for the 2003-04 season.
One division, without subtraction (for now)
Pitt will face one of the league's most attractive and demanding schedules under the Big East Conference's new one-division format for the 2003-04 men's basketball season.
The 14-member Big East will discontinue the two-division alignment of the past three seasons, with each team playing every other team at least once and three teams twice.
