We knew that Villanova would be one of the eight participating BIG EAST schools in the 2016 edition of the Gavitt Games. Additionally, 'Nova fans were aware that the Wildcats would be traveling to West Lafayette, IN to take on the Purdue Boilermakers.

The Wildcats to visit Purdue on Monday, Nov. 14 to open the 2016 #GavittTipoffGames https://t.co/9DUbxpBOQJ— Villanova MBB (@NovaMBB) May 3, 2016
The tilt at Mackey Arena will be on Monday, November 14th. Neither a tipoff time nor TV coverage (although it will air on BTN or an ESPN station) has been announced.
Villanova is 2-0 all-time against Purdue, winning contests in November 2012 and December 1995.
