Source: Hoops schools upset with direction

For those who have wondered about basketball schools contemplating a split from the Big East, I present to you this story from Andy Katz and Brett McMurphy:

The seven Big East Catholic, non-FBS schools met with Big East commissioner Mike Aresco on Sunday to express their concerns for the direction of the conference, multiple Big East sources confirmed to ESPN.com on Monday.

Sources said the New York meeting was the first among the seven schools (Marquette, DePaul, St. John's, Georgetown, Providence, Seton Hall and Villanova) and ultimately could lead to them splitting from the Big East's football members.

The meeting was first reported by AJerseyguy.com.

There is plenty more from Katz and McMurphy, so to read the rest of their story, click here. There also is the possibility the Atlantic 10 could take Big East schools if the league falls apart, Katz reports.
