2014 Big East schedule is here!

At long last, we can dissect how Villanova is going to go 18-0 in the league this season!


Big East hoops schedule next week!

The Big East has confirmed that a conference schedule for men's basketball should be released next week.


Date set for Big 5 clash with Penn

Information about Villanova's 2013-14 schedule is slowly trickling in, the latest reveal was the schedule released by the University of Pennsylvania.


Add Lafayette to the 2013-14 Villanova schedule

Just when we thought we had a handle on which teams Villanova would be playing this Fall, another piece of the schedule came out. According to the Allentown Morning Call, the Wildcats will host the Lafayette Leopards on November 8th, in what will be the season opener.

Given the timing of the game and the Wildcats' participation in the preseason Battle for Atlantis tournament, it is possible that Lafayette is the "mainland" game provided for through that tournament. Towson is definitely participating in the mainland portion of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, however, according to a schedule released by Kansas, so they may be more likely. That mainland home game does not count toward the NCAA's scheduling limitation of 27 games per season (excluding a qualified preseason "exempt" tournament).

Last season, Lafayette had an RPI ranking of 151st. Their head coach, Fran O'Hanlon played at Villanova from 1967 until his graduation in 1970 before continuing his career in the ABA and in Sweden. He moved into coaching in 1982 and became the Leopards' head coach in 1995, where he has been since. He maintains a strong relationship with his alma mater, despite coaching elsewhere, and was reportedly involved in the hiring decision that had brought Coach Raphael Chillious to Villanova last season (Chillious had played at Lafayette).

In addition to Lafayette and three games in the Battle 4 Atlantis's Bahamas bracket, Villanova will play the following Non-Conference games:

  1. AT Temple
  2. AT St. Joseph's
  3. La Salle
  4. Towson
  5. Penn
  6. Delaware
  7. Rider
  8. Mount St. Mary's
  9. AT Syracuse (December 28)
Combined with an anticipated 18 league games, facing each opponent from the Big East both home and away. Though the Big East basketball schedule remains unfinished at this point, the 'Cats are expected to travel to Indianapolis on New Years Eve to take on Butler as part of a December 31st hoops marathon on Fox Sports 1.

Add Monmouth to finish the slate

We still can't tell you when Villanova will play their 2013-14 men's basketball opponents — other than Syracuse (December 28) and the Battle 4 Atlantis (November 28-30) — or which of the home games will be played at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. We can, however, tell you the full slate that Villanova will play next season.

According to Monmouth University head coach King Rice, the Wildcats and Hawks will continue their series this Fall, as both schools join new conferences. As Villanova moves into the new incarnation of the Big East conference, Monmouth will be playing its inaugural season as a member of the MAAC.

Monmouth will also face the Big East's New Jersey representative, Seton Hall, as well as participating in the early rounds of the Barclays Center Classic.

Villanova has played at Monmouth University's arena twice in the series, all in the last three seasons. It will be the 10th meeting between the teams in a series where the Wildcats remain undefeated. The 'Cats dropped 106 points on the Hawks in November 2011, but they played a much closer contest in the opening round of the 2006 NCAA Tournament.

Rumor: Add The Mount to 13-14 schedule

Kudos to Fact on Villanova SportsTheatre, who was the first to notice this scheduling news. According to the Twitter account of a basketball signee at Mount St. Mary's, Villanova will be one of a few high major programs that the NEC school will face this coming season.

"The Mount," located in Emmitsburg, Maryland, has one NCAA Tournament Championship at the Division II level in 1962. Two Mountaineer alums have played in the NBA, Fred Carter and Bob Riley, while John F. Sullivan played in the ABA. They have appeared in the NCAA tournament three-times since moving to Division I, with the most recent coming in 2008.

Last season, they finished with an 18-14 record and made it to the NEC final, where they lost to LIU-Brooklyn.

If the tweet is accurate, 'Nova adds The Mount to a non-conference scheduled that includes three games in the Bahamas at the Battle 4 Atlantis, at Temple, at St. Joseph's, at Syracuse and hosting La Salle, Towson, Penn, and Delaware.

Add in the 18 conference games in the Big East, and only one of Villanova's 2013-14 opponents would remain unaccounted for.
