Hoops Mania takes place tonight, and the event serves as a perfect way to for one last time celebrate the Final Four team of last season while also welcoming this year’s players as they try to build on the team’s performance from a year ago.
According to Villanova’s SGA, there will be events celebrating the Final Four team and other Villanova teams of years past.
There will also be player introductions for this year’s team, a routine between the players and the dance team and supposedly some sort of dunk contest or pickup game.
As has become customary the last few year at Villanova, a performer will also take the court at Hoops Mania. The rumors have suggested that Trey Songz will be this year’s act, but there have also been reports that it may be Pitbull or Asher Roth.
The Blue/White scrimmage, which usually had taken place the night of Hoops Mania, will now take place tomorrow night.
Hoopla aside, tonight’s Hoops Mania is first and foremost about basketball, and although the first game is still three weeks from today, tonight will get students and fans thinking about basketball. After tonight, the anticipation will for what expects to be an exciting season will grow even higher.
