The Villanova University men’s basketball team will host three conference games at the Wells Fargo Center as part of its 2012-13 schedule, the school announced Wednesday.
The first comes on Tuesday, January 22, when preseason Big East favorite Louisville, a Final Four team from a year ago, comes in for an 8 p.m. start. Four days later, the Wildcats take on another league power when they face Syracuse for an 11 a.m. matinee tip-off.
Villanova’s regular season comes to a close when Georgetown invades South Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 6 for a 7 p.m. date.
The Wildcats will be hosting games at the Wells Fargo Center for the 16th consecutive season. Villanova has averaged more than 16,000 fans during that span, not including four NCAA Tournament games the Wildcats played there in 2006 and 2009.
Information on tickets to games at the Wells Fargo Center will be announced later this fall.
