It's the matchup we've all been waiting for! #1 Villanova still has plenty of doubters (and even a win tonight won't stop them) while #5 Xavier needs a marquee win to make a strong case for a #1 seed on Selection Sunday. The game not only features the two best teams in the conference, but the two best coaches as well - both of whom are receiving consideration for National Coach of the Year.
This is the biggest game in the history of the Cintas Center and in the reconfigured Big East. Enjoy!

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Rolling Rock Jameson, rocks
For a half a second I actually thought about rolling with the VUAA Manhattan drink specials and I do love some RR but I'm going to be on the edge of my seat for this one and I want to be yelling at the TV during the good and the bad and this is the quickest path to that.
