Starting to feel like that Big East title is wrappd up? Or that a 1-seed is inevitable? One thing the Villanova Wildcats can’t afford to do is drop games against bad teams. And even though the DePaul Blue Demons gave them a scare back in December, they are a bad team and a potential bad loss.
Villanova is on just over 48 hours of rest as they finish their Midwest swing.
(Sidebar: Anyone remember the song Midwest Swing by Nelly’s rap group the St. Lunatics? Because I do)
With a hefty dose of #roadattitude the ‘Cats will be focused on the job at hand. The Blue Demons have lost eight straight since their lone conference win over Providence. Let’s make it an even 9 (sounded good out loud, sticking with it).
Game Time, TV Schedule: 9:00pm ET. The game will be televised on CBS Sports Network.
Live Video Stream: CBSSN can be streamed online here if you subscribe to the channel with Frontier, WOW, Cox or Optimum.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Poor Mrs. Lane still can’t have a drink, so I decided to make her a mocktail of sorts so she can enjoy the romp with a smile (and of course I’ll just dump a load of wine in my version).
