Big East Tournament 2013 bracket: Georgetown earns No. 1 seed

Mitchell Layton

The Georgetown Hoyas, 61-39 winners over Syracuse on Saturday, earned the No. 1 seed in the 2013 Big East Tournament, to be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Seeding for the 2013 Big East Tournament was finalized on Saturday, with the Georgetown Hoyas earning the No. 1 seed by virtue of their head-to-head records against both Louisville and Marquette. All three teams ended the conference season 14-4, but the Hoyas were 2-1 against the Cardinals and Golden Eagles, earning them top billing at Madison Square Garden when festivities kick off on Tuesday.

Louisville, the No. 2 seed, is the defending conference tournament champion. Georgetown has won a conference record-tying seven Big East championships. The winner of the Big East tourney has made the last two Final Fours.
