Big East-SEC Invitational Appears Finished After Upcoming Season
It also likely will be the final game of the four-year-old event.
The future of the Big East-SEC Invitational is on "life support" and the event is unlikely to continue after this season, a college basketball industry source told FanHouse.
The Big East-SEC Invitational began in 2007. The format has the leagues playing four games each season with a pair of double-headers split between a Big East and SEC venue.
Multiple sources told FanHouse the future of the Big East-SEC Invitational is bleak because the conferences are not committed to making it work and they don't feel like they gain much by making it a priority.
This year's Big East-SEC Invitational contests are Arkansas vs. Seton Hall and Kentucky vs. Notre Dame at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky., on Dec. 8; and Auburn vs. Rutgers and Tennessee vs. Pittsburgh at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh on Dec. 11.
The Big East leads the Big East-SEC Invitational series 7-5.
