The Sun's Arizin: A big day for Villanova Basketball at Pearl Harbor

The early season measuring stick game is finally here.

Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! A weekend without Villanova hoops was odd (and somewhat refreshing without the added stress), but now the big game we've all been waiting for is here. Given how good the Big East looks this is just one of several tests throughout the year, but it certainly will be a March-like test in that the game presents an unfamiliar opponent in an unfamiliar gym.

Can't wait!

And now, the "news."
