**FILE** In this Dec. 15, 2012, file photo, a Big East Conference logo is displayed on the court after Georgetown played Western Carolina in an NCAA college basketball game at the Verizon Center in Washington. Big East football schools will get almost all of a $110 million pot in a deal that will allow seven departing basketball schools to keep the name Big East and start playing in their own conference next season, a person familiar with the negotiations says. The basketball schools, which include Georgetown, St. John's, Villanova, Seton Hall, Providence, Marquette and DePaul, will receive $10 million, keep the conference name and the right to play their conference tournament at Madison Square Garden.
