Villanova Basketball and the Bigger East

Happy Thursday Nova Nation! Today at Noon Eastern, the Big East will officially add UConn as the 11th member of the conference:

The move has been talked about all week, and at the end of the day it looks like a big win for everyone but UConn football fans. For Villanova, this checks a lot of boxes that fans have been asking for:

  • Expand to 20 conference games with a quality opponent
  • Established rivalry games
  • More competitive non-conference schedule

To that last point, until there’s a major shift the Wildcats will have most of their games planned out before the off-season even begins.
