What to Know

The #22 Xavier Musketeers are 2-10 against the #19 Villanova Wildcats since December of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Wednesday. Xavier and the Wildcats will face off in a Big East battle at 6:30 p.m. ET at Cintas Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

While not quite a landslide, the game between the Musketeers and the Butler Bulldogs this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Xavier wrapped it up with an 87-72 win on the road. Four players on Xavier scored in the double digits: guard Adam Kunkel (25), guard Paul Scruggs (16), forward Jerome Hunter (12), and forward Zach Freemantle (10). Scruggs hadn’t helped his team much against Villanova in the teams’ previous meeting last month, so this was a nice turnaround for him.

Meanwhile, Villanova didn’t have too much trouble with the DePaul Blue Demons on the road this past Saturday as they won 79-64. The Wildcats’ guard Collin Gillespie did his thing and had 28 points.

The wins brought the Musketeers up to 11-2 and Villanova to 11-4. Xavier is 9-2 after wins this year, Villanova 7-3.
