The Villanova Wildcats will look to reverse a late-season skid with a victory over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish tonight at the Joyce Center in South Bend in this Big East clash. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. (ET) and the game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

Villanova is headed in the wrong direction at the wrong time of the year. It has four losses in its last six games including an 81-68 trashing at the hands of St. John’s this past Saturday as a 6 ½-point home favorite. This latest loss dropped the Wildcats to 21-8 straight-up overall and 11-14-1 against the spread. They are in a five-way tie for seventh-place in the Big East standings at 9-7 SU.

Corey Fisher and Cory Stokes continue to pace this team as each is averaging just over 15 points a game. Fisher has struggled from the field as of late and is now hitting just 42.5 percent of his shots. The Wildcats are averaging 74 points a game and shooting 44.1 percent from the floor. They remain a solid team under the boards with 38 rebounds a game.

Notre Dame continued its surprising run through the Big East with a 94-93 squeaker over Providence last Wednesday as a four-point road favorite and a 60-48 romp over Seton Hall as a 10-point home favorite this past Saturday. The Irish are now 23-5 SU overall (13-10 ATS) and just one game behind Pittsburgh in the Big East with a conference record of 12-4 SU.

Ben Hansbrough and Tim Abromaitis are responsible for the bulk of Notre Dame’s offensive production this season. Hansbrough leads the team with 18 points and four assists a game, while Abromaitis is second in scoring with 14.9 points and is averaging 6.3 rebounds a game. The Irish are shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 72.5 percent from the foul-line. They are averaging 75 points and 37 rebounds a game.

Notre Dame is 2-5 SU in the last seven meetings between these two, but has the clear momentum heading into this matchup. Take the Irish to add to Villanova’s misery with a convincing win at home.

VILLA are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Mon. games.
