Villanova is off to a fine start in the Big East at 3-1, and they have a winnable couple of games before a title-race contest with Butler. DePaul at home is a game you should win in any year, but the Blue Demons have been competitive thus far.
A torrid non-conference performance behind Charlie Moore and Paul Reed put them on the radar - and not just for the jokes! However, an 0-3 start has them back in familiar basement territory.
If you want to win the conference, these are the games you have to win.

I’m staying at a very swanky hotel with a very fancy bar. These were very good on my test run.
