Big East Showdown

NCAA Game of the Day

There aren’t a lot of good games today but Nova vs Marquette is pretty solid. Both are in the hunt for the Big East title and in the top 15 in the rankings. Both of these teams are very close in ability and potential. Neither has any major weaknesses. Villanova has troubles keeping big guys off the offensive glass but Marquette is not a big team. Villanova is at home and that helps, as evidenced by their blowout of Syracuse last game.  Villanova has reeled off five straight wins in conference. Marquette is coming off a loss to South Florida, so they appear to have road issues. I’m going to take Villanova in this one.

13 Villanova 81 vs 12 Marquette 75 (Villanova 102 vs Marquette 84)
