Villanova is in the NCAA Tournament, no question.
As for the Musketeers? They are the definition of a bubble team. They finished 9-9 in the Big East and grabbed the sixth seed in the postseason tournament. The NIT seemed like their destination a few days ago.
But that’s why they play the games.
Easier said than done. The fourth-ranked Wildcats (31-2) have won both meetings this season by a double-digit margin.
The game tips off at 8 p.m. Eastern on FOX Sports 1. Gus Johnson will handle play-by-play duties and he’ll be joined by analyst Jim Jackson and reporter Molly McGrath.
