Programming note: Big East Classics on Fox Sports 1

Rob Carr

Before next Tuesday's five-game marathon of games on Fox Sports 1 to kick off the Big East's conference play - which will start with St. John's at Xavier next week at noon - the channel will show Big East Classics today on Christmas Day. The classics, of course, will focus on the banner 1984-1985 seasons where St. John's, Georgetown and Villanova reached the Final Four - and connected the Big East with major conference basketball.

Starting at noon, FS1 will show St. John's knocking off the Georgetown Hoyas in 1984, featuring a 33-point performance from Chris Mullin. At 4:00 PM, Fox Sports will show the NCAA 1985 Tournament semifinal game between St. John's and Georgetown. (St. John's didn't win.)

Villanova gets a pair of games in today's marathon; newer Big East sides Marquette and Butler's NCAA Tournament game from last season is also featured.
