It took Villanova over five years to find itself back on a losing streak, but hopefully it will only take five days to get off it. The Wildcats will look to return to their winning ways as they take on Canisius in the opening round of the Advocare Invitational today.
The Canisius Golden Griffins are 1-2 to start the season. Their lone victory came against Jay Wright’s alma mater Bucknell, but then they dropped their next two including a 33 point blowout against #14 Florida State.
For those of you who may be spending Thanksgiving with people who think it’s a football holiday, remember the game starts at 1:30 EST. That’s about an hour into the Bears vs Lions game, which should be plenty of time for Detroit to get blown out before halftime. Be sure to find and hang onto the remote!

This is about as close to the Caribbean Villanova will be all year, so we may as well sail with the Captain. In order to ensure I have the correct amount of rum, and to honor the new “Finn” tradition, I’ll start pouring at tip-off and stop when Nova makes its first basket.
