According to this report from ESPN, the Big East Tournament will be remaining at Madison Square Garden for the foreseeable future.

Despite six schools leaving the Big East for the ACC, the Big East will not lose Madison Square Garden, the home of its men's basketball tournament, to the ACC anytime soon.

The deadline to bid for the 2016-21 ACC's men's basketball tournaments has passed and Madison Square Garden did not submit a bid, sources told ESPN. The 2013-15 ACC men's basketball tournaments will be held in Greensboro, N.C. A decision for where the 2016-21 ACC tournaments will be held will be made in the coming months.

Big East and Madison Square Garden officials also are continuing discussions about extending the Big East's current deal with the Garden, sources told ESPN. The Big East's current deal with MSG runs through 2016. The length of the extension being discussed is 10 years, which would lock up the Garden through 2026, the New York Post reported.

Nice, and also the ACC can eat a bag of all the dicks.
