After a long week off - and likely one filled with defensive drills - Villanova welcomes Marquette to the Wells Fargo Center. The ‘Cats were undone by some utterly insane (aided by lax defense) shooting at Butler, and the
Warriors Golden Eagles boast the top two scorers in Andrew Rowsey and Markus Howard.
Both guards love to hoist it up from long-range, and Howard in particular will come in feeling very good after dropping 52 points this week in an OT win at Providence.
It’s fair to expect a better effort from the Wildcats defense on Saturday night, but we saw first-hand last season how Marquette can exploit teams that switch off for even just a few minutes.
Should be fun?

Late weekend tip (plus an early flight to Vegas!) means we’re going to
take it easy go balls to the wall. I already have PTSD going into this game from both last year’s trip to the BMO Harris Center and last weekend’s trip for Hinkle. I only know one way to cope.
