I've gotten a couple emails asking about our schedule for the upcoming season. Obviously, it is not completely set in stone yet, but there have been some schools/dates that have been officially confirmed:
- at La Salle Explorers on December 12th
- vs. Delaware Blue Hens on December 18th
- vs. Temple Owls on December 29th
- at Monmouth Hawks -- Date TBA
- The BIG EAST Home/Away Schedule -- Dates TBA
We also know that we'll be playing at the Penn Quakers and at home vs. the wannabes from down the street in The Holy War.
In addition, it's been confirmed that Villanova will be participating in the Pre-Season NIT this year. The first few games are played on-site, wheras the semi-finals and finals are played at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Villanova has been grouped with the George Washington Colonials, Marist Red Foxes and Boston U. Terriers (coached by former assistant Pat Chambers). These games will be played November 15-17 on campus. The final rounds in New York will be played November 24th and 26th.
Right now that puts Villanova at 28 games (assuming they make the finals of the NIT), leading us to believe that at most 3 more opponents will be announced.
