Mainly it was that I think the quality of education is pretty equal and Pittsburgh will end up being about $14,000 cheaper for me a year. I also researched and think I like the international program at Pittsburgh a little better and the final thing was that I wanted a little better facilities than Villanova has at the current. Those were the main things that caused me to change.

Teams currently in the Big East account for 40 all time Final Four appearances and 10 National Championships, numbers only surpassed by the Big Ten and Pac-10 respectively. 15 of the Big East's 16 teams (or 93%) have been to the Final Four, by far the most of any conference.
In the 2006 season the Big East got a record eight teams into the NCAA tournament. These teams were Syracuse, West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Marquette, UConn, Seton Hall, Villanova, and Georgetown.
