Fingers crossed that Villanova is a part of this event.

Thanks to our friends at The UConn Blog, we have a heads up on a potential scheduling opportunity for Villanova in 2021-22 and 2022-23.

Currently Villanova plays the local Big 5 series and generally fills out the schedule with a warm weather tournament and a series of ‘event’ games such as the Gavitt Games, Big East-Big 12 Challenge, and NYC events.

That type of schedule limits the buy-games on the schedule that fans dread. With the addition of UConn and subsequent move to a 20-game conference schedule, these are the types of events the program should strive to be a part of.

Given the NYC component to this series, you’d have to imagine Villanova will lobby to be a part of this event. Potential matchups with Arizona, UCLA and Oregon are exciting to think about as well.

Fingers crossed!
