The Georgetown Hoyas predictably destroyed the DePaul Blue Demons on Wednesday night to set up a rematch with Villanova on Thursday afternoon. Only an improbably Big East Tournament championship will save the Hoyas, while the Wildcats need a title to secure a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
When these teams last met, Villanova jumped all over Georgetown en route to a 84-71 win to complete a season sweep over their arch-rivals. John Thompson III may not be coaching for his job, but a win on Thursday afternoon and a continued BET run could go a long way to restoring confidence in his regime.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 12:00pm ET. The game will be aired on FS1.
Odds: Not opened.
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.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Friends, I have to come clean. I booked this trip fully intending to go full hog for the next three days. Life and work got in the way, and I'm going to be able to consume one (1) Guiness before I head to the water. This is for today only, and when we win, I personally guarantee that I make up for it on the flight home and carry it on through the Atlanta gamewatches this weekend.
(If we lose I'll make up for it too)
