Last chance for men’s live basketball: This year’s Big East Men’s Basketball Tournament home to locals UConn, St. John’s, Seton Hall, and Rutgers is the first to include 16 teams. Don’t be discouraged by the conference’s announcement that tickets for all five rounds have been bought out by the conference member schools. There are still plenty available on StubHub, even for tonight’s championship game. If you want to avoid the Garden crowds, try Ship of Fools (1590 Second Avenue, 212-570-2651) for food, pool, darts, and satellite TV what more could a fan ask for?
