Big East: A record for futility

By Jerry Palm - March 10, 2007

The game is in the books. The Hoyas won 65-42. The 42 points by Pitt shatters the record for the fewest in a Big East championship game. The previous record was 54 by Georgetown in 1992 and Villanova in 1982. The record for the fewest points in a tournament game in any round is 40, so Pitt just missed that one.

The trophy has been given out. The all tournament team matched my ballot except that DaJuan Summers of Georgetown made it instead of Dan Fitzgerald of Marquette.

I haven't heard Sinatra yet, but it's time to go shred my brackets again, so I'll beat the Christmas rush and get out of here. Be sure to catch our bracket projection and breakdown shows on CSTV tomorrow at 5:30 and 7:00 PM ET.
