(3) Marquette vs. (4) Syracuse in Washington, D.C.


East Regional PreviewWASHINGTON, D.C. – The Elite Eight tips off Saturday at 4 PM Eastern as third-seeded Marquette squares off with #4 seeded Syracuse. The two longtime rivals won’t be members of the same conference after this season, but for now, it’s an all-Big East affair with a spot in the Final Four in Atlanta on the line.

Marquette comes in off its first convincing win of the tournament, a 71-61 wire-to-wire win over second-seeded Miami, while the Orange of Syracuse just ousted top-seeded Indiana from the Big Dance.

Ian Eagle and John Thompson will be on hand to call the East Regional Final and they filed this preview.
