After losing to Notre Dame on Saturday 10-7, Villanova falls into the #2 seed for the upcoming Big East Tournament to be held at Villanova Stadium on May 3rd and May 5th. Although there are still conference games this weekend, the seeds are set, with Notre Dame being the top seed, Syracuse #3, and St. John's sitting at #4.
On Thursday, May 3rd, Notre Dame will take on St. John's, while Villanova matches up against Syracuse. Earlier this season, the Wildcats beat the Orange 11-10 at the Carrier Dome, which was probably the biggest win in program history. The winners advance to the championship game on Saturday, May 5th at noon. Time for the semifinal games have not been announced yet. The winner of the conference tournament earns an automatic bid to the 16-team NCAA Tournament.
