Well the Big East’s “Catholic 7” are definitely breaking away from the conference, now they just need to decide when and how to do it, USA Today reports. Despite how some fans of the Big East feel about what’s happening, there is going to be one hell of a new basketball conference formed. There are winners and losers in all this involving some big programs and other conferences, but how might this all affect George Mason? It’s too soon to tell but Mason’s name has been throw around in the talk of other teams that could be plucked if the Catholic 7 did in fact form a new league.
The Big East basketball divorce and potential poaching of A-10 is why outgoing AD Norwood Teague recommended #VCU sit tight for a year.
