While the matchups for the SEC/Big East Challenge were announced on June 1st, the game times and TV schedule was not released until today. In the second installment of the SEC/Big East Challenge, Villanova will travel to Vanderbilt on Saturday December 1st for a 5 PM EST game on ESPN2. This tournament features 12 games over a 3 day span all on ESPN channels. The full schedule is below. The matchup against Vanderbilt will be a solid test for a young Nova team, especially in an odd arena, where the benches are on the endlines and the sideline stands are well away from the court.
