Big East basketball matchups announced

Somewhat lost amidst all the hoopla surrounding the NBA draft, the matchups for the 2010-2011 Big East basketball season were announced on Thursday as well.

A reminder: Big East teams play an 18-game conference schedule -- you play every team once, and then there are three schools that you play a home-and-home with.

Let's take a look at the three local Big East teams, and see who they will be playing twice:

St. John's: Georgetown, Notre Dame, Cincinnati

Seton Hall: Syracuse, Marquette, Rutgers

Rutgers: Villanova, Providence Seton Hall
