#18 Villanova (10-1) vs. Navy (8-3)
7:30 p.m., 22 December at the Pavilion.

TV: None. Video available online via "Nova Nation All-Access" or (hopefully) free Channelsurfing (not working at gametime, see radio link below)

Audio: Here -- WMP for Windows or Mac required.

Line: OFF

Villanova returns from its longest layoff this season for a Christmas cupcake match against Navy at the Pavilion tonight.



The Wildcats remain at #18 in the AP poll this afternoon after having the week off.

Navy hails from the Patriot League and is sitting on a respectable 8-3 record. The Midshipmen are coming off a bad loss against an atrocious Canisius team, however, and should pose no threat to Villanova's holiday celebrations.

Take a look at the game previews from VBTN, IBBW, VUhoops, and Nova News.

I have yet to see a book set a line for this game yet, but I would set it at Villanova -23.

Predict tonight's final score in the comment section below. The closest guess will win a mention in the game recap.

By the way, nice call 2 hrs after the game started... why didn't you say so before the game? Oh right, it's because Villanova was probably going to win by 20+ -- at least that's what KenPom projected.

Villanova played terrible defense and allowed Navy to stay in the games via undefended threes. That's what happened.

Navy is actually a decent team. Sportswriters have taken note of that as last week they earned a few votes in the AP poll. Also, while the middies did shoot 50% from behind the arc, it was obviously Jay's plan to clog the middle. He was successful in that as Navy was 2-14 in the paint in the first half.
