Both the men's and women's Villanova Basketball teams will kick off the season in style tonight at Hoops Mania, the annual first look at the teams for the coming season. The night will feature 3-point contests, a dunk contest, and a dancing competition where players from the men's team will pair up with members of the Villanova Dance Team to strut their stuff.
The men's team will also play an abbreviated scrimmage, and fans will be given streamers to christen the first made basket of the new season.
The night typically finishes with a surprise musical guest. ScHoolboy Q, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Fabolous and 50 Cent/Tony Yayo have starred in the past. Rumors on campus seem to suggest that hip hop artist Big Sean may be in-line this year.
If you have tickets (the event as always is sold-out), doors to the Pavilion open at 5:30pm ET. Here's how to watch the action:
