The Finneran Pavilion will play host to its first marquee game when Michigan comes to town on Wednesday night as part of the Gavitt Games. The media will justly hype this as a National Championship rematch - and kudos to the event organizers for getting this on the books - but the game will have lasting impact to both teams’ 2018-19 seasons.
Villanova has looked mighty impressive against inferior competition to open the season as they bed in a handful of new faces into the rotation, while Michigan struggled for a half against Holy Cross in their last outing. Revenge will surely be on their minds when they step on the court Wednesday night.
Buckle up, this should be quite a game.
