They're back.

And this time, the Denver Pioneers want to bring home Big East hardware.

Third-ranked DU (11-2, 5-0 Big East) opens play in the Big East Tournament against Marquette (6-7, 3-2) Thursday at 2:30 p.m. MDT in Villanova, Pennsylvania.

Despite winning the regular season Big East crown the last two years, Marquette has eliminated Denver in the Big East tournament in each of those seasons.

The Pioneers are hoping to repeat last weekend's 7-4 win over the Golden Eagles to close out the regular season.

The winner of the DU-Marquette game will play the Villanova-Georgetown winner for the Big East tournament championship on Saturday, May 5 at 12 p.m. MDT.
