More details about Villanova's Hawaiian tilt against Oklahoma have been released by the Naval Academy.

That press release confirms that the event will be a nationally broadcast doubleheader on Fox Sports 1 with the Wildcats and Sooners tipping off at 2p local time (7p ET) on December 7th- 74th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The Navy Midshipmen and Oregon Ducks will face each other in the 2nd game scheduled to tip off two and a half hours later.

Also squashed in the news was the notion that the games would be played in the open air- whether on an Aircraft Carrier or on an outside court. Maintaining the solemn tribute to those who tragically fell when Pearl Harbor was attacked, the games will be played on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickham in Bloch Arena.

This will be the fourth career meeting between the two schools. Oklahoma won in 1988 and Jay Wright claimed victories in December 2005 & 2006.

Update Villanova has confirmed the game.
