Villanova was cruising for a while until Xavier knocked them down last week. With this win they clinch the regular season Big East crown.
Things are still not turning around much for DePaul. They have won just three conference games this season, second worst.
Things are going to be tight for the top seeds in the NCAAs. Villanova may need to impress down the stretch.
The Blue Demons truly do have a rich hoops history they just can’t seem to get back to respectability, so they can have something to build on.
As mentioned above they have only three conference wins and most of their losses are by double digits. They have just one road win in the Big East a surprising triumph over Marquette, by a point. Villanova is just a little better than Marquette.
Blue Demons leading scorer Myke Henry is productive at the small forward spot averaging 13 and 6. The Illinois transfer is enjoying his best season as a senior.
The same cannot be said of junior wing Billy Garrett Jr. After averaging 12ppg as a frosh the expectations were high but his numbers have stalled and this season he has struggled with his shooting.
DePaul was smacked by Villanova at home, losing 86-59. The best they have hope for is a more respectable showing.
The Wildcats bounced back from their midweek loss to Xavier to beat Marquette by 10 over the weekend.
They finish the season at home against DePaul and Rival Georgetown, a win in either game guarantees them the league title.
In the win over Marquette they showed their diversity with big man Daniel Ochefu becoming a bigger part of the offense. He scored 18 points, nearly double his season average.
Leading scorer Josh Hart scored 19 as the frontcourt really led the way.
The two-headed PG monster of Ryan Arcidiacono and Jalen Brunson were quiet, content to let others do the heavy lifting, they only scored 19 combined. This team is pretty deep when it comes to scoring options.
