Villanova gives sneak peek of Pavilion renovations

The home of the reigning national champs is getting a serious makeover, and Wildcat fans can now get a glimpse of what their in-game experience will look like in the future.

In February, Villanova announced the school's board of trustees had approved a $60 million renovation of its 31-year-old basketball arena, the Pavilion.

On Wednesday night, the school released some renderings of those renovations, as well as a little pump-up video to get students and alumni excited.

Among the new digs: A Hall of Fame exhibit, VIP box clubs, renovations to seating, concessions and walkway into the building, a new home locker room and a "recruiting" room.

The arena will be renamed the Finneran Pavilion and is expected to be open by the 2018-19 season, meaning both the women's and men's teams will have to find temporary homes for next season.

Most of the men's games are expected to be played at the Wells Fargo Center, while most of the women's games will be at the Jake Nevin Field House.
