Madison Square Garden is one of the busiest arenas in the world. With College Basketball's popularity, especially in Big East country, it's not a surprise that they would book as many games as possible.
Each season, some of the best teams in the nation visit New York City to play on The Garden’s famed hardwood. Since 1934, generations of College Basketball fans have packed "The World's Most Famous Arena." The Garden's annual lineup includes the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic, NIT Season Tip-off, Jimmy V Classic, Maggie Dixon Classic, MSG Holiday Festival, BIG EAST Tournament and the Postseason NIT.

Jimmy V Classic -- Michigan State versus Syracuse on December 7, 2010. Jim Boehim and Tom Izzo will square off it what is sure to be a battle. The Tuesday game will be on ESPN 9 p.m. ET.
The other Jimmy V Classic game is the 2008 Championship game, Memphis versus Kansas. Two very different teams at this point but the Jayhawks should win just like they did before.
St. John's versus National Champion Duke on January 30, 2011. Steve Lavin has done well recruiting but this one might be a stretch. One of the great things about college basketball though is that anyone can win. That's why they play the game.
And of course the Big East tournament is always a thriller and an excuse maker for those teams that can't make it all the way in the Big Dance.
What game are you most looking forward to?
