Villanova still hasn’t lost since it suffered back-to-back defeats on the road to Pennsylvania and Kansas in mid-December.
Since then, the ‘Cats are 6–0 and five of those wins have been in the conference. Villanova followed up a 12-point road win at Creighton with a 10-point home triumph over Xavier.
Despite making just one of his five free throws, Phil Booth led the Wildcats with 22 points on 8-for-16 from the field; he got some help from Collin Gillespie and Eric Paschall, who combined for 35.
Both teams had more than double assists to turnovers but ‘Nova shot it better from three. It’s in the first tier in the Big East but not alone. This will be a challenging road game.
In fact, I like Butler and believe it has to be, and probably will be, a favorite. The Bulldogs looked great in a nine-point win over St. John’s on Saturday behind 30 points from Kamar Baldwin, who turned it over three times.
Jordan Tucker made six of his 11 three-point shots and scored 24 off the bench. Butler was just even on assists and turnovers but St. John’s was even worse, despite getting 20 each from Shamorie Ponds and Mustafa Heron.
Butler is +40 over its last five, though only 3–2 and without a win by more than 18. The home loss to Georgetown in the Big East opener was the only defeat at Hinkle FIeldhouse this season. It’s a tough place to play and Villanova has lost here when it has had far better teams than it has this year.

Free Villanova Wildcats vs. Butler Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction: Butler gets it done.
This won’t feel like an upset of the magnitude of the last two, when ‘Nova was ranked No. 1 but it’ll be a sweet victory to get Butler back into the Big East jumble.
