Love everything about this!
This is great! Can’t wait - this is how perennial contenders for the national championship (us and 'nova) should approach the non-conference season! May have to make the trip.
The out of conference schedule will be loaded this upcoming year. Ideally we get UCLA and Kansas in the preseason tournament too. I would love to play Gonzaga in the next few years. I feel like we’ll see them in the tourney sometime.
Really hope the season isn’t condensed due to Covid.
We’re looking at Nova, 2/3 of Kansas UCLA Georgetown, plus a high level BIG/ACC Challenge opponent! All those teams sans Georgetown could be too 15 opponents
That’s awesome Hoos in the Garden. Bennett and Wright all around awesomeness.
This would presumably be a Saturday game in December?
REALLY hope we can get in a rhythm of playing Nova as often as possible. It would be so great for so many reasons. Wright and TB are both by the books coaches, not to mention roughly the same age and will be around for awhile. Both teams are hitting their stride at the same time. Excellent offensive scheme vs. excellent defensive scheme. Not to mention both teams lean experience > talent. Truly great for both schools and CBB, win or lose!
So out of conferences is
- Big 10 school
- Gardner Webb
- Long Beach St
- Kent State
Am I missing any scheduled games?
Very excited about this! Was already planning on driving to Anaheim but I may be looking to fly to NYC for this one. Hope the season happens!
I hope this game gets played. This would be awesome. New York may not allow fans
Nice. The kind of game national champs should have on the schedule.
That’s probably a good possibility.
So does this mean the Kentucky matchup won’t begin for another year?
I believe that was rumored for 21 or 22
Unless I’m missing a game in that list, I think Virginia still has one open spot for an OOC game…
Fairleigh Dickinson, 12/8 at home.
UVA vs VILLANOVA is happening December 19 on fox in MSG
Nice does that mean Gus Jonshon may be on the call?
Would think so. Gus and Raf, can’t beat that! Noon tip kinda stinks though .
Ouch didn’t realize it was a noon tip, that’s a shame but Gus and Raf about as good as it gets.
