Villanova Wildcats

Villanova Wildcats​ try to get back on track after a loss to Providence last Saturday. A win is a must for Villanova if they want a crack at the Big East title. Collin Gillespie needs to step up anew after a 13-point outing against Providence. He is expected to get support from guys like Jeremiah Robinson-Earl. The Wildcats average 103.4 points against Big East opponents but need to address their turnovers. The defense has been holding up, limiting the opponent to only 93.8 points per game.
