Fresh off their coronation atop the college basketball rankings, Villanova heads to Allstate Arena tonight to take on the DePaul Blue Demons. Now in his second stint at the school, Dave Leitao hasn't made much progress as the Blue Demons sit at 8-15 (2-9 in the Big East).
Villanova should have Daniel Ochefu back after the big man missed three games with a concussion, but Darryl Reynolds has stepped up admirably in his place and his emergence will be something to keep an eye on down the stretch.
Heavily favored, Villanova should feel good about their prospects on the road, but DePaul can be feisty. Behind Billy Garrett Jr. and Myke Henry, the Blue Demons have already taken out two Top 25 teams in George Washington and Providence at Allstate Arena this season.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 8:30pm ET. The game will be aired on Fox Sports 1.
Odds: OddsShark has the line at Villanova -13.5.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Goose Island Honkers Ale
Going with one of the most well known Chicago breweries and my favorite beer from them. Lots of people like their IPA, but I'm growing a bit tired of drinking IPAs and it's a Tuesday vs. DePaul (for all your BPL fans, this is like a Tuesday night in Stoke). Keep it simple and delightful. In and out of Rosemont and get ready for Saturday at the WFC!
