Flashback to BIG EAST Tournament 1968-69

By Abby Stinson


Get ready to rally behind our Wildcats this week as the men’s basketball team gears up for the BIG EAST Tournament! As a flashback in the spirit of the season, above is the front cover of the media guide for the 1968-1969 basketball season. These guides, utilized by various media outlets, provided valuable insights into the team and the upcoming season. This historical team was ranked 10th in the final AP poll of the season, boasting an impressive 21-5 record. (They lost in the First Round of the NCAA tournament versus Davidson.)

In this year’s tournament, Villanova, seeded 6th, plays against 11th seed DePaul on Wednesday, March 13 at 9 p.m. Sporting a 17-14 record, our Wildcats promise to make this March Madness season an interesting one.

Tune in to support our team during the most thrilling time of the year for college basketball!
