DePaul! Butler! It's the Big East on Fox Sports 1!

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It's the opening pair of games in the 2014 Big East Tournament! Riveting action is on tap as the Butler Bulldogs will face the Seton Hall Pirates in the first game of the evening (7pm ET) for the right to take on the BIG EAST CHAMPION Villanova Wildcats in the quarterfinals on Thursday afternoon.

The Georgetown Hoyas will face the DePaul Blue Demons in the nightcap (9pm ET), with the winner moving on to face the Creighton Bluejays on Thursday night.

Both games will air on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports Go. As a reward for your diligent viewership, you get to hear Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery call the action tonight. If anyone can make these games exciting (remember, they've called the live action of a newborn being delivered in an abandoned hospital), it's our favorite dynamic duo.

Use this as your general open thread to discuss the games.
