After a 2-2 start in conference play, Xavier is sitting firmly in the middle of a suddenly resurgent Big East. The conference is ranked second in RPI to only the Big 12 and has seen early projections of sending 6-8 teams dancing in March. Xavier's resume is very bubble-ish at the moment, and they'll be looking to score a big win against the first place Wildcats.
Villanova moved up to #5 in the national polls this week and seem to have put the loss to Seton Hall behind, recording blowout victories against St. John's and DePaul last week. They embarassed Xavier on the Pavilion floor last season, and will look to keep the momentum going on Wednesday night.
