The Villanova Wildcats (4-2) is back in the Palestra for a big 5 matchup against the Penn Quakers (3-6) for the first time since the 2019-20 season.
Villanova is coming off a very close player game win over La Salle on Sunday. Can the Wildcats do it again? On paper, all signs point towards that they can, but it wouldn’t be the first time that a team that hadn’t played a full season since 2019-20 exceed all expectations (like Howard) or the Quakers shock the Wildcats ( like they did in 2018-19 season).
But Villanova coach Jay Wright holds a 17-4 carrier record against the Quakers. The Wildcats will be favored once again but nothing is guaranteed in a Big 5 matchup. Villanova has also been battling a flu bug off the court that made its way through the team.
We did see Dhamir Crosby-Roundtree get some time on the court Vs La Salle on Sunday. He was expected to be out for the season.
Penn will come into this match off of a 76-60 loss to Arkansas on Sunday and hope to avoid a third consecutive loss to the Wildcats. The Quakers now must defend the 3 balls, as Villanova is hitting 42.2% of its attempts from beyond the Arc.
We just saw in the Quaker’s last game they were shooting 36.8% from the field. The three-point shooting landed at 25.9% on the day. They turned the ball over 15 times and only managed to get 28 rebounds.
This is going to be a great game and we will see the best of both teams in this game. It’s a must-watch.
