Like it or not, Big 5 season is upon us as Villanova will travel to Tom Gola Arena to take on La Salle. The Wildcats, now residing in the Top 10, are coming off a 31-point dismantling of Delaware on Sunday. At 6-0, they have lived up to their preseason billing and will look to sweep the Big 5 for the second straight season.
The Explorers enter tonight with a 4-2 record, but have lost two straight games to Virginia and Vanderbilt. Jordan Price, a transfer from Auburn, will be a new face for Villanova to contend with, but the frontcourt should look very familar with Jerrell Wright and Steve Zack. Last season, Darrun Hilliard paved the road to victory with 21 points in a 73-52 Villanova win.
