For the first time in what feels like several weeks, Villanova will play a basketball game. At home! A conference game, in fact!
Whatever the reseason is, the ‘Cats will finally open up their Big East schedule by hosting DePaul on Wednesday night. DePaul is fresh off a loss to Xavier to open their conference slate, and will be looking for a statement win against ‘Nova.
The Blue Demons have been not terrible, but upon closer review they’ve feasted on some RPI-killers and - outside of an OT win over Penn State - not been able to get over the hump against real competition.
It’s been quite the holiday layoff for ‘Nova, so some rust should be expected. Hopefully they can pick up where they left off when we last saw them and kick on in 2019.
Venue: Finneran Pavilion (Villanova, Pa.)
Time: 8:30pm ET
