Villanova heads to Milwaukee on Sunday afternoon looking to protect their 1-game lead in the Big East standings and their #1 ranking, and they won’t have their full arsenal. Phil Booth is out for at least a month, and Mikal Bridges is fighting some sort of injury that has slowed him down recently.
Meanwhile, Marquette can’t really seem to click into top gear as the Warriors have gone 4-4 thus far in the conference and sit on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. A second straight victory over Villanova at the BMO Harris Bradley Center would surely give them the resume boosting win they need to feel good on Selection Sunday.
Keep an eye on the ‘Cats backcourt (which should feature more of Collin Gillespie) vs. Markus Howard and Andrew Rowsey. Whichever groups gets the better of the other will likely lead their team to victory.

Drink That Guarantees The W: Red & Black
I’m being dragged to a friends brunch during this game so I’m not even sure I’ll get to see it live, but the upside is a good Mexican brunch. Downside is I won’t actually get to have the cocktail I want.
1.5 weeks left of this no-drink madness.
