Villanova Wildcats head to Omaha tonight to take on Creighton Bluejays in the penultimate game of their BIG EAST regular season campaign. In late January, 'Nova used a stifling defense to exact revenge on the Bluejays, who were the only team to put a blemish on their conference record a year ago. Darrun Hilliard led the way with 24 points that night, and should be a big factor in the offense again as he drives towards a possible BIG EAST Player of the Year award.
Creighton is basically playing for pride at this point. At just 13-16 (4-12), they will need to win it all in New York if they'll be playing in the postseason. Things have been better of late with Greg McDermott's team winning three of their last six, but they'll be heavy underdogs against the Wildcats.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 9:15pm ET. The game will be aired nationally on Fox Sports 1.
