Villanova and Virginia commit to series the next two seasons
Villanova were two of the best teams in all of college basketball a year ago. Each fought hard for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, with Villanova ultimately receiving the nod and Virginia settling for the top No. 2 seed.
Now, the defending Big East champion and reigning ACC regular-season champ - who both figure to start next season ranked among the top teams - have reached a two-year agreement to play each other.
The first meeting will be Dec. 19 at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers will visit Philadelphia in 2016-17, mostly likely playing at the Wells Fargo Center.
