Villanova, Oklahoma to play in Hawaii during 2015-16 season

Villanova and Oklahoma will play a neutral-site game Dec. 7 in Hawaii in honor of the 74-year anniversary of Pearl Harbor, sources told CBSSports.com. 

Specific details of the game are expected to be announced soon, but it's likely this game will have a similar feel to previous college basketball games that have taken place on the grounds of the US Military.

Villanova returns five of its top eight scorers from this past season's team, which went 33-3 and were a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately, the Wildcats lost in the Round of 32 to NC State. The Wildcats are also welcoming in freshman Jalen Brunson, who is arguably the top point guard in the Class of 2015.

Oklahoma returns four starters from the 2014-15 squad that went 24-11 and lost to Michigan State in the Sweet 16.

Both squads are projected to be ranked in the top 10 at the start of next season.
