Villanova to play Oklahoma in Hawaii on Pearl Harbor Anniversary

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Following the report that Jay Wright's Villanova Wildcats will play Nebraska, Jon Rothstein of CBS is reporting that 'Nova will head to Hawaii to play the Oklahoma Sooners on December 7th, the 74th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor.

The Sooners and Wildcats will play the Monday game in a setting that "will have a similar feel to previous college basketball games that have taken place on the grounds of the US Military."

Oklahoma (24-11, 12-6 Big12) was the 3-seed in the East Region where they lost to Michigan State.

This will be the fourth career meeting between the two schools. Oklahoma won in 1988 and Jay Wright claimed victories in December 205 & 2006.
