ACC, though...that was what the Big East wanted to be. That was like, always the aim. A northeastern version of ACC basketball, which was just the five or six coastal states. So, even when the Big East clearly owned the sport...I bet even the best members would have dumped BE for ACC.
No Big East teams would have left the Big East for the ACC for basketball purposes.
