Games of the Day

Wednesday

Villanova vs. Xavier

Here are two teams separated by just a half a game. With conference playing wrapping up sooner than we think, these types of games could potentially keep a school out of the tourney come Selection Sunday. Last time these teams played, Isaiah Whitehead managed just 20% shooting but still contributed 16 points. Angel Delgado finished with a double-double, while limiting the Hoyas to just 34% shooting from the field.

Saturday

Xavier vs. Seton Hall

I HAD to pick the Senior Night (Day?) for the winningest class in the school's history.

This is an easy week for `Nova playing both of their games so close, and the sooner they can lock up the Regular Season Title the better. Oh yeah, and keeping the (1) next to Villanova is cool too.
