Source: Big East Tournament Staying At MSG Through '25-26 Season

The Big East basketball tournament has been held at MSG every year since '83
The Big East and Madison Square Garden are “poised to announce a multi-year extension that will keep the league’s men’s basketball tournament” at the arena, according to a source cited by Lenn Robbins of the N.Y. POST. The announcement could “come as soon as today when the Big East holds its college basketball media day at the New York Athletic Club.” The Big East is “signed to play in the Garden through the 2015-2016 season.” The source said that the “new deal will extend the arrangement through the 2025-26 season.” The source added that the two parties had been “working for months on the new deal and that new Big East commissioner Mike Aresco had made it a priority.” Robbins notes the Big East, “buoyed by the addition of basketball powers Memphis and Temple, and the resurgence of Houston was more than enough to assure the Garden the tournament would continue to be a success.” MSG has hosted the conference’s tournament every year since ’83 (N.Y. POST, 10/17).
