Three weeks ago we tweeted that rumors were warming up about Villanova facing Missouri in the Jimmy V Classic next season. Over the weekend, the Madison Square Garden game between the Tigers and Wildcats was confirmed by UM's new coach Frank Haith.
Jay Wright's squad will also be heading to the 76 Classic in Anaheim, CA over Thanksgiving weekend where they will play 3 games. Boston College, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Saint Louis, Santa Clara, UC Riverside, and Washington State will round out the participating schools.
With these 4 games, as well as 18 Big East Conference games and 4 Big 5 games, there are only about 4 or 5 games to fill out the 2011-12 Villanova Basketball schedule.
(Updated 5/19) Villanova was one of four schools that was not selected to play in the Big East/SEC Challenge this season.
