Things feel back on track (sort of) after Villanova’s mid-week win over Marquette. While the offense is still struggling through large chunks of the game, the defensive intensity was there, and Jermaine Sameuls appears capable of being a major part of the offense.
Butler has lost 2 straight - the latest in overtime at home against Providence - and has struggled for consistency all season. Their NCAA Tournament hopes are pretty much done save a run in New York City, but they’d still love to play spoiler on the road.
It’s the final home game of the season on a Saturday afternoon - let’s hope for a big and loud crowd as the rejuvenated Wildcats look to close out the regular season with momentum.

I’m in Allentown visiting (my wife’s) family, and could not convince my wife to make the short trip to the Wells Fargo Center. This was in her grandma’s fridge.
