Villanova Statement On Conference Re-Alignment

Villanova University has released the following statement regarding conference re-alignment amid recent defections of Syracuse and Pittsburgh from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Villanova University will never waver from its pursuit of excellence. Part of that pursuit is a firm commitment to furthering its current position as a premier athletic program. As a long-standing member of the Big East, we are fully aware of the impact the recent announcements have had on the ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics. We remain determined to ensure Villanova’s position of national prominence and are strongly committed to the success of the Big East. Ultimately, our focus must be on our student-athletes and assuring they can flourish and reach their potential both in competition and in the classroom. The University will continue to move forward aggressively and strategically at both the conference and national levels, and we are confident that no matter how the conferences align, Villanova’s history of both academic and athletic success will continue for years to come.

Hey, at least we know that somebody in the administration is awake today.
