More bracket reveal news: The 76 Classic. DePaul was the Big East representative last year. This year, Villanova will try to do better than the 8th place showing (there's only eight teams) that the Blue Demons put up in 2010. As we pointed out before, people are expecting big things from Maalik Wayns now that the Coreys are gone.
Villanova will play UC Riverside in their first game in the 76 Classic on November 24 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2. If things work out, the Wildcats could be bringing home the trophy. Villanova will play the winner (or should something terrible happen against Riverside) or the loser of the Boston College-Saint Louis tilt. New Mexico is contender for the title and could be Villanova's opponent in the final.
Here are the other matchups in the first round of the 76 Classic (all times Eastern):
Boston College vs. Saint Louis, November 24, 2:00 p.m., ESPNU
New Mexico vs. Santa Clara, November 24, 9:00 p.m., ESPNU
Oklahoma vs. Washington State, November 24, 11:30 p.m., ESPN2
