Viewing Guide: How to watch St. John's vs. Villanova

New, comments

Saturday nights at the Wells Fargo Center bring back great memories.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Villanova returns home as the #1 team in the country to play their second game of the season at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. With an nighttime tip and plenty of time to tailgate, it should be a festive atmosphere for the St. John's Red Storm's visit.

Chris Mullin's team comes in at 7-18 overall, and is still seeking their first victory in the Big East in 2016. They lost the first leg of this series 68-53 at the end of January, and both teams will have important players on Saturday night. Daniel Ochefu missed the game at Madison Square Garden with a concussion while Yankuba Sima was missing with a broken hand.

St. John's has some young talent and continues to play hard, but Villanova should have more than enough to easily see them off.

Game Time, TV Schedule: 8:00pm ET. The game will be aired on CBS Sports Network.

Odds: OddsShark reports the game opened at Villanova -26.

Radio: All Villanova Men's Basketball games air live on radio in the Philadelphia market on 610 WIP. Westwood One will also air coverage of the game - check your local listings, or you can use a radio app such as Tune.in.

Live Video Stream: CBS doesn't have their act together :(

    BEVERAGE OF CHOICE

    Jameson Caskmates

    If you know me personally, or just through this blog, you probably know I'm a big Jameson fan. My dear brother got me a bottle of the Caskmates blend for my birthday, so I'm going to be popping it open for tonight's game. I don't know if it will be good or bad, but I'm excited. With your #1 Villanova Wildcats gracing their home court to throngs of screaming fans, what better ocassion could there be?

    (Okay fine I know a better one, but we're not there yet!)
