For months, we’ve had a pretty good idea of what the Villanova Wildcats basketball schedule for the upcoming season will look like. There appeared to be just one unknown game, but a recent email from the Villanova Athletic Department has spilled the beans.
The final home non-conference game will be played against Columbia, as mentioned in an email containing details on the home schedule and the ability to purchase tickets.
(Boy, Columbia sure brings back some good memories!)
Here’s the non-conference schedule as we know it today - obviously several dates, times and TV coverage will be confirmed when Villanova released the schedule in full which is typically later in the summer.
November 10: vs. Columbia
November 17: vs. Lafayette (PPL Center in Allentown, Pa.)
November 22-24: Battle 4 Atlantis, Western Kentucky
November 29: vs. Penn
December 2: at St. Joseph’s (Pa.) (ESPN2)
December 5: vs. Gonzaga (Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y.)
December 10: vs. La Salle
December 13: at Temple (ESPN2)
December 22: vs. Hofstra (Nassau Coliseum in East Garden City, N.Y.)
January 20: at Connecticut (XL Center in Hartford, Conn.)
A date for the home game against Nicholls St. has not yet been announced by either side.
