As we continue to piece the 2014-15 Villanova Men's Basketball Schedule together a few more games are falling into place.

According to Jon Rothstein, the Wildcats will host Bucknell and Detroit in the preliminary rounds of the 2014 Legends Classic.

Jay Wright is a 1983 graduate of Bucknell and the Wildcats have a 15-8 All-Time Against the Bison, including the last 8 dating back to 1946. The last meeting was in November of 2011.

'Nova has faced Detroit 18 times, winning 16 of those matchups, but the last of those was in January 1974.

As dates and opponents are announced from non-Nova sources we'll keep track of them here.
