Villanova announces Wells Fargo Center games

VILLANOVA, Pa. – The Villanova Wildcats will host three BIG EAST games at the Wells Fargo Center as part of their 2012-13 schedule.

Villanova meets Louisville at the Center on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 8:00 p.m. Four days later, the Center will be the site as Syracuse visits South Philadelphia in a contest that will tip off at 11 a.m.

The Wildcats conclude the regular season at the Center when Georgetown comes to town on Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00 p.m.

The balance of Villanova’s home dates will be played on campus at the Pavilion. The Wildcats open the regular season on Nov. 9 at the Pavilion when UDC is in town as part of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project. VU will then host Marshall on Sunday, Nov. 11, also at the Pavilion.

The 2012-13 campaign marks VU’s 16th consecutive season hosting contests at the Center. It has averaged better than 16,000 fans per home game in that span, which does not include four NCAA Tournament games the ‘Cats played there in 2006 and 2009.

Information on tickets to the Wells Fargo Center portion of the schedule will be announced later this fall.
