Classic Big Five matchup here. St. Joe’s might be able to compete in the A10 this year but this looks like a loss.
Not sure of the ceiling of Villanova this season but they have stopped the bleeding and been playing better lately.
St. Joseph’s Hawks
It is hard to get a great read on St. Joe’s so far. Their results have been all over the map. This is their second big five game – they lost to Temple 77-70.
Charlie Brown is a familiar name but nobody is talking about him. He is a long wing forward averaging 22ppg and making more than half of his shots.
He and Lamarr Kimble form a potent duo thanks to Kimble’s 18ppg. This duo will be counted on heavily if the Hawks are going to stay in this one.
The Hawks are not very deep, playing about 7 regularly. They are going to have to all be on their game, especially the bigs who will be challenged.
Even though they took two losses the Wildcats still look like a Top 25 team. They have now won five straight.
Things are far from perfect though. In their last game only one starter had as many as 10 points. The offense is not yet clicking.
Phil Booth is not doing as much with his feature role as expected. The same goes for Eric Paschall. Both have been solid but they need more from them.
That is because a highly touted freshman class has not given the Wildcats much production. Or at least not yet.

Free St. Joseph’s Hawks vs. Villanova Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
Villanova will definitely be favoured at home. in this one. They just beat a Temple team that beat St. Joe’s for a comparison.
If the Wildcats are right they should add another victory in this Big 5 tilt.
