In the final game of their 4-game homestand, Villanova welcomes Butler to the Wells Fargo Center. If there ever was an opponent to get ‘Nova right after a shocking loss, the Bulldogs are it.
LaVall Jordan continued his predecessor’s hot streak against Villanova at the turn of the year when the Bulldogs went bonkers from downtown in a shocking upset. They followed that losing 4 of their next 5, but have since rebounded by winning 4 of their last 5 heading into Saturday. They’re coming off a brutal OT loss to Xavier, so they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways.
Villanova will again be without the services of Eric Paschall and Phil Booth, and will need an all-around better effort from the entire team if they hope to come away with the win.

It’s North London Derby day, so things are going to be starting quite early with one of my favorite breakfast cocktails before we get into a lunchtime beating of Butler.
