The current iteration of the Big East is going out with a bang. With No. 3 Marquette and No. 4 Syracuse facing off in the final of the East Region, at least one team currently hailing from the conference will reach the Final Four.

No. 1 Indiana was stymied by Syracuse's 2-3 zone in the Sweet 16 but the third-seeded Marquette Golden Eagles should be more familiar with it. In a meeting earlier this season, Marquette beat Syracuse by three. Of course, that doesn't mean that Buzz Williams is happy to see Jim Boeheim's bunch again.

"I don't want to play Syracuse again. [People say] 'Well, you know them and you know their zone.' I know all that," Williams said, via the Associated Press. "I don't want to play 'em. I would rather play somebody else. But it's part of having so many good teams in our league that go to the NCAA tournament."

Will Boehieim need to further postpone his family trip to Disney World after clinching a spot in the national semifinals? Or will Marquette top 'Cuse again and book a trip to Atlanta?
