Villanova Basketball is back! Yes, it’s just an exhibition game but it is the first time we get to watch our beloved ‘Cats take on another basketball team - and a decent one at that!

IUP shouldn’t present too much of a challenge as a Division II outfit, but they are ranked #24 to start the season in their division. This game, being played at the Wells Fargo Center, is free to any and all who wish to go. It appears tickets will be distributed at the windows on a first-come, first-serve basis so get there early if you want to lock in good seats!

Game Time, TV Schedule: 12:00pm ET. The game will not be televised.

Live Video Stream: ’Nova Nation All-Access will air the game, with the stream beginning at 11:45am ET.


Wells Fargo Center doors open at 10:30am ET.

Coach Jay Wright & the players will hold a pregame talk at 11:00am ET.

A 2016 National Championship banner will be raised to the rafters at 11:50am ET.

An autograph session with the players will take place immediately following the game.


Mint Julep

It’s BBQ day in our house. Wife has multiple baby showers and the brother in-law is coming over to soak up some ‘Nova sports. We’ve got both football & basketball today!

I asked the bro to pick a bourbon mixed drink and this is what he decided on. I’m guessing his version will essentially be bourbon over ice with a mint leaf, but feel free to get more creative on your own.
