Through 2013, seven of the schools in the Big East have won NCAA men's basketball championships: Connecticut (3), Syracuse (1), Villanova (1), Georgetown (1), Marquette (1), Cincinnati (2) and Louisville (3). However, Marquette and Cincinnati won their titles before joining the Big East, and Louisville won two of its titles before joining the Big East.

In 1985, there were three Big East teams (St. John's, Villanova and Georgetown) in the Final Four and two (Villanova and Georgetown) in the title game.
