BIG EAST Men's Basketball Opponents Announced

Yeah, we do know who the opponents will be every year. But what we always wait for around summer is the announcement of the who we are playing at home, who we play on the road, and the 3 teams we'll play twice.

Here is Villanova's slate:


  • Cincinnati
  • Georgetown
  • Louisville
  • Marquette
  • St. John's
  • West Virginia


  • UConn
  • DePaul
  • Notre Dame
  • Providence
  • Seton Hall
  • South Florida


  • Syracuse
  • Pittsburgh
  • Rutgers

Some early thoughts -- I think we got a gift with our away schedule. Outside of UConn (and who knows how they will be this year) and South Florida (they are tough at home) we shouldn't have much of a problem. We got the meat of the league at home, which is great to see.

In terms of the home-n-homes, I'm glad Syracuse and PIttsburgh are both on it. Yes, those are tough teams, but they are also rivals and we should be playing them twice a year. If we lose to Rutgers I give up.
