At first glance, February has a brutal stretch of games - Butler at home and then road trips to Providence and Xavier isn’t rosy. A brief reprieve for DePaul at home is followed by road trips to Creighton and Seton Hall. That could be the defining stretch of games if Villanova hopes to repeat as Big East champions for the 5th straight year.

So now we wait for Villanova to release the full schedule. The big outstanding item is the opponent for the exhibition game to kick off the season, as well as any outstanding details around TV coverage.
