Viewing Guide: How to watch Butler vs. Villanova

New, comments

Senior Night!

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Despite Villanova having another home game on the schedule vs. DePaul, the Wildcats will celebrate Senior Night on Saturday afternoon since this will be the final game with the majority of students on campus (Spring Break is during the DePaul game). That's a big deal, as Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu (and can't forget the #BenchMob) are currently the winningest class in program history and have been at the forefront of Villanova's maturation in to an elite program.

Saturday doesn't look like all fun and games with the Butler Bulldogs in town. Wildcats fans should feel strong heading in to this game though. While the two teams have played some memorable games inside Hinkle Fieldhouse, they've owned this series in the Pavilion.

The Bulldogs need a win to boost their NCAA Tournament resume, and the Wildcats don't want to give up that #1 ranking just yet. Expect a fun contest Saturday afternoon.

Game Time, TV Schedule: 2:30pm ET. The game will be aired on FOX.

Odds: OddsShark reports the game opened at Villanova -11.

Radio: All Villanova Men's Basketball games air live on radio in the Philadelphia market on 610 WIP. Westwood One will also air coverage of the game - check your local listings, or you can use a radio app such as Tune.in.

    BEVERAGE OF CHOICE

    Rum Runner

    Surprise! I'm in South Florida this weekend with the family so I'm going to be drinking these until they go out of style. There's various recipes on this one, but I know there's at least two types of rum and both pineapple ad orange juice. They're strong and addicting. Also I'll probably be putting a 151 floater on top most of the time, so if I do happen to make it to the GameThread expect a rowdy version of me.
