"Hello Friends, I'm Jim Nantz. This weekend we embark on one of sports' greatest traditions. The excitement. The pageantry. The history. The elegance of Villanova University's every sport in the universe turf field. This can be nothing other than the Big East Lacrosse Tournament. Notre Dame heads in with a sure spot in the NCAA Tournament, but to lock up their first conference crown would make many an Irish eye a smilin'. Then there's Villanova, who needs a Big East championship on their home turf to send them to the NCAAs. And then there's the perennial powerhouse, Syracuse. The Orange are in an unthinkable situation... if they don't get the auto-bid, they'll be sitting out the NCAA Tournament. And let's not forget St. John's, who's looking to play the ultimate role of spoiler and crash the NCAA party. Without further ado, let's take a look at this year's tournament, which can be seen right after the jump."

"If you click on the graphic, you'll be able to see it even more clearly. Now that we've got everything set up, it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy College Crosse's coverage of the 2012 Big East Lacrosse Tournament! Coming up in a little bit we'll have more infographics with team and matchup profiles. Then stick around for analytics of the four schools involved. It's all up ahead, right here on College Crosse!"

Though seriously, how awesome would it be to have Jim Nantz announce the Big East Tournament? Welp, either way, he's here to help us in our infographic coverage today for the most storied tournament in all of college lacrosse, the Big East Tournament. And by most storied we obviously mean the most new. We needed to spice up our coverage with sarcasm about the tradition part, though.
