Star center Udoka Azubuike almost certainly will not be laying on Saturday for Kansas. That’s about all the good news you’re going to find as the Wildcats head to historic Phog Allen Fieldhouse to face the #1 ranked team in the country.
An already tough week finishes with the toughest game Villanova will play during the regular season. That’s not to say all is lost - Villanova has plenty of memorable wins against the Jayhawks.
While there’s plenty of revenge likely on the minds of Bill Self’s group, Villanova’s upperclassmen can bring plenty of confidence from past successes.
Here’s hoping we’re in for another stunner.
