The Villanova Wildcats are looking very good for a favorable NCAA Tournament draw, but that won’t slow them down in New York. A year after a heartbreaking loss to Seton Hall (it all worked out okay in the end), the ‘Cats Senior class will surely want to bring home another Big East Tournament title.
A good draw - the ‘Cats will avoid Butler and Providence (currently red-hot) until the finals means they’re the heavy favorites in New York City.
They’ll take on the St. John’s Red Storm after the Johnnies won a thriller over the Georgetown Hoyas on Wednesday night. The game was a heated affair with a late second half flare up bringing back memories of the 80s Big East. With the win, they’ll be in a buoyant mood for Thursday afternoon.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 12:00pm ET. The game will be televised on FS1.
Live Video Stream: FoxSportsGO will have the live stream.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
Shortest line in MSG
I’ll be inside the World’s Most Famous Arena for Thursday’s quarterfinal action before I head back home Atlanta-way. So whatever line’s short (beer) is what we’ll be having!
