The 2012–13 Big East Conference men's basketball season began with practices on October 2012 and ended with the 2013 Big East Men's Basketball Tournament at Madison Square Garden March 12–16, 2013 in Manhattan, New York. The regular season began in November, with the conference schedule starting on December 31, 2012. 2012-13 marked the 34th year of the Big East, and the 2013 men's basketball Championship marked the 31st anniversary of the Big East at Madison Square Garden, the longest-running conference tournament at one venue in the country. With West Virginia now in the Big 12, the 2012-13 Big East Conference schedule included 4 repeat games.

UConn was ineligible for postseason tournament participation due to low APR scores, The Huskies were also ineligible for the 2013 Big East Tournament; the school unsuccessfully appealed the ruling.[2]

The 2012-13 season was the last for the Big East in its original form. In December 2012, the seven Big East schools that do not sponsor Division I FBS footballDePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John's, Seton Hall, and Villanova, collectively called the "Catholic 7"—announced they would leave the Big East to start a new conference of their own.[3] On March 8, 2013, the "Catholic 7" and the remaining Big East schools announced a separation agreement.[4] Under the agreement, the "Catholic 7" purchased the Big East name and the contract with Madison Square Garden for the conference tournament, and began operating under the Big East name beginning on July 1, 2013.[4] The remaining schools, which kept the charter of the original Big East, announced on April 3 that they would operate as the American Athletic Conference (The American).[5] This was also the final season for Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse, all of which left for the ACC on July 1, 2013. On the same day, SMU, UCF, Memphis, Houston, and Temple became full members of The American.
