How to watch Villanova vs. Butler

Villanova goes to Hinkle shorthanded.

NCAA Basketball: Butler at Villanova Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

With the news that Jermaine Samuels will be out for a couple of months, Villanova will have to face one of their toughest road trips with what will likely be a 7-man rotation.

To be fair, the ‘Cats top-6 have down the majority of the damage thus far, but losing healthy bodies against a tough opponent is a blow.

The Bulldogs stormed back from a 20-point deficit to take down the Georgetown Hoyas on the road in their Big East opener on Wednesday, so they’ll be riding high in the Hinkle Fieldhouse opener.

Butler swept the ‘Cats last season, so ‘Nova wont’ be lacking for motivation. It should make for a good contest.
