2 games in to the 2018 rendition of the Big 5, and Villanova still has their otherwordly streak going. They’ll try to get that streak to 25 straight when their chief local rival comes for a visit on Saturday afternoon.
Saint Joseph’s (PA) is off to a 5-4 start on the season and looks dangerous on paper with a Top-50 offense. However, they haven’t passed their toughest tests of the season dropping games to West Virginia, UCF and Temple.
They’d like nothing more than to finally take that step by knocking out Villanova on their home floor. The Wildcats have struggled at The Finn so far this season, but are flying high after Jermaine Samuels’ breakout performance helped them past Temple.
We should be in for another good contest on Saturday afternoon.

Drink That Guarantees The W: Monday Night Brewing
I’ll be down at the Monday Night Garage in Atlanta tailgating for the MLS Cup (sorry that the Sounders suck, MikeJ.), so I’ll be nibbling on everything they have on offer while watching the ‘Cats romp.
