UCLA Basketball: Bruins Schedule Series Against Villanova
Wildcat head coach Jay Wright will bring his team to Pauley Pavilion this season.
UCLA has scheduled a home-and-home basketball series with Villanova.
The Bruins will host the Wildcats at Pauley Pavilion on Friday, November 12, 2021 and they will head to Philadelphia to play Villanova during the 2023-24 season.
With the resurgence of UCLA basketball under head coach Mick Cronin, it’s good to see that the team is looking to schedule tough out of conference games against opponents who have been in the national conversation within the past few years.
This year’s meeting will be the sixth between the two teams. The most recent meeting occurred in the 2010 Preseason NIT when the Wildcats defeated the Bruins at Madison Square Garden, 82-70.
This year’s game will be just the second time that Villanova has made the trip to Pauley Pavilion. UCLA crushed the Wildcats, 93-65, when the Bruins hosted them in 2001.
