Sources: Butler, Xavier Will Join Catholic 7 in Big East This Week

A source said that Butler Univ. will "withdraw from the Atlantic 10" this week and "join the reshaped Big East," currently referred to as the Catholic 7. An announcement is "expected" this week. The goal is to "get a new conference done before the second round of the NCAA Tournament begins on Thursday." Leaving the conference early will "cost Butler a $2 million exit fee." Sources said that Xavier is expected to "join the conference next week." Creighton also has been "mentioned by several media outlets as a possible 10th member" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 3/16).
