BIG EAST Announced Restricted Attendance Policy

NEW YORK -- The BIG EAST Conference announced tonight that the remainder of the conference's men's basketball tournament, which continues tomorrow through Saturday, will be played under a restricted attendance policy. Attendees will be limited to student-athletes, coaches, event staff, essential team and conference staff, television personnel, credentialed media and immediate family members of the participating teams. Schools will be limited to 200 tickets per institution.

The decision was made by the conference's ten member institutions on a conference call this evening and follows the NCAA's announcement earlier today that upcoming NCAA championship events, including the Division I men's and women's basketball tournaments, will be conducted with only essential staff and limited family attendance.
