Report: Syracuse, Villanova Nearing Agreement On 1-1-1 Series

USA TODAY Sports

The Juice Online reported Sunday that Syracuse and Villanova are close to working out a 1-1-1 series that features a showdown at Madison Square Garden in 2015-16.

Nearly two weeks ago, James Arthur Boeheim dropped a hint that the Syracuse Orange and their old Big East Conference foe, the Villanova Wildcats, were working out a deal to continue playing each other.

On Sunday, SNY's The Juice Online published a story claiming the two schools are close to agreeing to a series.

Villanova is headed to the Dome this coming season as part of a 1-1-1 series with the game in Syracuse, a return meeting the following season at the Wells Fargo Center, and in the 2015-16 season a game at Madison Square Garden that could be part of a college basketball doubleheader.

As the article points out, the addition of 'Nova creates a fantastic basketball schedule featuring: 18 ACC games, including Duke and North Carolina at the Carrier Dome; a non-conference showdown with an improving St. John's squad; the ACC-Big Ten Challenge and the Maui Classic with Arkansas, Cal, Gonzaga, Baylor, Minnesota, Dayton and Chaminade.

Get excited!!
