After the football team’s heartbreaking 37-35 loss to Maine at Villanova Stadium on Saturday afternoon, many of those in attendance headed over to the Pavilion to catch the annual Villanova Basketball Blue vs. White basketball scrimmage.
This game has become a tradition at Villanova and a first look for fans at the men’s basketball squad for the upcoming season.
Not only is it a chance to see the returning members of last year’s team, but it’s an early look at the Freshman class, the new coaches, and often some basketball alumni who return to for homecoming weekend.
They play 2 fifteen minute halves, with head coach Jay Wright removing himself from coaching, giving way for the assistants to lead the two teams.
After a pre-season warm-up against West Chester at the Wells Fargo Center on November 2nd, Villanova will open its regular season on November 8th at the Pavilion when they host Lafayette.
