Quite the matchup headlines the Big East slate on Wednesday as the #22 Butler Bulldogs clash with the #2 Villanova Wildcats.
#22 Butler Bulldogs
Butler has rattled off back to back wins as their offense is clicking on all cylinders right now.
The Bulldogs put in a 110 point showing against St. Johns and followed that up with an 82 spot on DePaul. However, they’ll take a step up in their competition level here as they travel to Villanova here and follow this one up with a trip to Xavier.
Kelan Martin continues to be the go to guy for the Bulldogs.
Martin has put in 19 and 14 point showings in the back to back wins and continues to lead the team with 15.5 points per game.
For Butler here, turning this into a track meet may be the best case.
Villanova has plenty of shooters, but the Bulldogs have found success during this 2 game winning streak with quick tempo and quick triggered shots. Look for them to play a similar style here against Villanova, trying to create some transition jump shots.
#2 Villanova Wildcats
Villanova continues their push for a #1 seed come March and another signature win over a Top 25 team would be a nice step in the right direction.
Villanova has rattled off 7 straight wins and they’re not just winning games, they’re dominating games. The Wildcats continue to blow opponents out and come in off a 22 point win on the road at Seton Hall.
While this team features many top shooters in the nation, the defensive end is where the Wildcats shine.
Villanova ranks 17th in the nation as they average 63.0 points per game.
Closing out on shooters has been a huge reason for their success defensively, as they are one of the best when it comes to not allowing the 3.
Villanova ranks 18th in the nation as the opposition is shooting only 30.5%. That will certainly pose some issues for Butler here, who enjoys letting it fly from almost anywhere behind the arc.
