Villanova’s chief rival in the Big East is in town for a visit, and the Hoyas are (check notes) in solo third place in the Big East! That may say more about the rest of the conference than Georgetown, but it finally feels like they may be turning the corner under Patrick Ewing.
James Akinjo and Mac McClung form one of the best freshmen backcourts in the country and alongside Jesse Govan should present the Wildcats’ defense with some challenges.
Villanova is still unbeaten and will look to stay one game ahead of Marquette in the race for the regular season title. It’s all happening at high-noon in Philadelphia.
Venue: Wells Fargo Center (Philadelphia, Pa.)
