Coming off a loss to Marquette, your Villanova Wildcats probably would have liked an easier foe to regroup against. Instead, they’ll host the #12 Virginia Cavaliers - KenPom’s #3 team - to the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday afternoon.
Without a doubt the best non-conference game of the season - and possibly the biggest home game - the clash gives Villanova a chance to solidify themselves as a top seed for the NCAA Tournament, while a loss wouldn’t have any impact on a suddenly tight Big East race.
Last season the Hoos clipped the ‘Cats in Charlottesville in an offensive showcase. This year KenPom expects an ugly affair, predicting a 61-58 Wildcats victory.
Sunday is a white-out at the WFC, so if you’re attending dress appropriately!
