Despite a mid-week loss at #5 Xavier, Villanova still has control of the Big East entering this weekend. They're in possession of a one-game lead in the standings, and if they can win their final road game of the season they'll feel good about winning their third straight conference championship with just DePaul and Georgetown left to close out the season.
2016 has been a mixed bag for Marquette. They are loaded with talent, but most of it is still young and inexperienced. Injuries have plagued the Golden Eagles as well. Their 18-10 mark isn't terrible, but they're just 7-8 and toiling in the lower half of the Big East. Bu with Henry Ellenson and Luke Fischer manning the frontcourt, they'll be formidable.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 2:00pm ET. The game will be aired on FOX..

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Escape Artist (Asheville Brewing Co.)
I'm trapped in North Carolina (building up the wife-credit so I can follow the 'Cats around in March) but I've heard good things about this brewery from friends. Full disclosure, I've never had this beer but I liked the name. Final road game of the year. Blow them out, win a close one, I don't care. Just get out of the Bradley Center with the W and then clean up the cellar dwellers next week at home!
