Jon Rothstein is reporting that the Villanova Wildcats will join North Carolina, Purdue, and Tennessee in the 2021 Hall of Fame Tip-off.

The tournament will take place at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Connecticut. This will be Villanova’s first appearance in the tournament, but they’ll certainly be facing familiar tournament foes.

In 2016 the Wildcats defeated UNC in the National Championship game of the NCAA Tournament. Villanova then defeated Tennessee a year later in the Battle 4 Atlantis. And most recently, the ‘Cats fell to Purdue in the second round of last year’s NCAA Tournament.

The Hall of Fame Tip-Off dates are yet to be announced, but will likely take place in November of 2021.
