#20 Villanova (5-0) will take on Rhode Island (5-1) tonight in the Championship of the Philly Hoop Group Classic. The Rams' lone lost on the season is at the hands of Duke in a game that saw URI lead most of the way.
The Rams have 4 players averaging double-digits in scoring led by guards Jimmy Baron (18.5) who is a terrific shooter and Keith Cothran (17.8).
Villanova holds a 4-2 edge over Rhode Island through history, but interestingly enough, the last game was in 1950.
Locally in the Metro Philly area, the TV will be broadcast on CN8. Audio can be heard on 950 ESPN. Tipoff is at 8:45. If you're not in the Philly area, the game should be available via channelsurfing.net.
Dwayne Anderson is out.
Tickets are available on StubHub.
