Two days of Villanova hoops in a row! The Villanova Wildcats will take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the NIT Season Tip-off final at the Barclays Center this afternoon. Both teams won their semifinal matchups easily, and will look to take home some hardware to campus.
At 4-1 on the season, Georgia Tech is off to a good start but was shocked last weekend by a last-ditch win by ETSU, a team Villanova destroyed. The Yellow Jackets are very strong on the inside, where Villanova can be exploited. But they'll likely have an extremely hard time defending the Villanova guards.
