The defending champs have lost two in a row. They could be looking ahead to when Marquette visits next week too.
Xavier used to be the top challenger in the Big East but they are down this season. At home they could be a threat though.
Back to back road losses are never great, and breaking that streak while on the road will be tough. Villanova is resilient though.
Phil Booth has been really good this season. It is kind of amazing how talented last year’s title winning group was when you factor in he was on that team too.
The challenge has been getting regular contributions from the rest of the team. Eric Paschall can be good but with the rest of the team you just never know.
Freshman Jahvon Quinerly was supposed to be a phenom and it would be great if he could find that gear to let Booth play off the ball more.
Xavier has won three in a row but I think it is going to be too little too late in terms of getting back to the Big Dance, unless they auto-qualify.
Naji Marshall scored 28 in a one point road win at Seton Hall and he is their best scorer. He still needs to work on efficiency though.
Tyrique Jones has had back to back double-doubles and could have some success against Villanova, who is not very strong inside.
This one will be tough for Xavier. They are not a good three point shooting team and Villanova loves to launch. They are going to have to find a way to balance that.

Free Villanova Wildcats vs. Xavier Musketeers NCAAB Prediction:
Villanova is probably a small favourite in this one. That is usually a pretty good bet.
I don’t like that they are on the road or their recent form but as long as the number isn’t too big.
