    The Big East tournament is about to begin, and it’s one of Carmelo Anthony’s favorite times of year.

    This is the time of year when he is helping his NBA team push for the playoffs and also cheering on his Syracuse Orange as they slug it out in the Big East tournament, the best conference tournament in the land.

    He has plenty of years left to chase championships with the New York Knicks. He wishes he could say the same for his Orange in the Big East.

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame is joining the Atlantic Coast Conference a season earlier than expected, following the split among the Big East’s football schools and seven Catholic schools that are leaving to form a basketball-focused conference.

    Notre Dame announced the move Tuesday, six months after it surprised the college sports world by opting to join the ACC in all sports except football and hockey.

    Tuesday’s move means Notre Dame will join the ACC at the same time as fellow Big East members Pittsburgh and Syracuse, which announced earlier they would join the league. Louisville is expected to join the ACC after next season.

    The move means Notre Dame coaches can move forward with scheduling for the 2013-14 school year.
