A much-anticipated classic Big East matchup reportedly has its first date locked up.
The UConn Huskies and Villanova Wildcats are set to meet in January 2018. Jon Rothstein of CBS/FanRag Sports had the scoop that the Huskies and Wildcats are set to meet at the XL Center in Hartford on January 20, 2018.
UConn will host Villanova on January 20th, 2018 at the XL Center in Hartford, per a source. First game of multi-year series.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) June 14, 2017
UConn and ‘Nova are obviously longtime rivals, with their history dating back to when both patrolled the Big East Conference in the 1980s, 90s and 2000s. As has been in the case in the past with renewed Big East rivalries, this one should prove to be a hoot when it goes down in mid-January.
