#23 Villanova (13-3) vs. St. John's (10-6)
12 p.m. 18 January 2009 at the Pavilion.


Line: Villanova -TBD

Villanova basketball resumes tomorrow with a game against St. John's after an 8-day layoff. The Wildcats have lost two of three, and desperately need a win to get back to .500 in the Big East before the schedule really gets tough next week.

The Red Storm will likely finish toward the bottom of conference standings, but St. John's has just one really bad loss so far this year, a 14-point home pasting at the hands of Virginia Tech. The Red Storm also have an impressive win over Notre Dame.

Take a look at JohnnyJungle.com for a very nice preview from the St. John's perspective. Also be sure to check out the four other Villanova blogs for their previews.

Kenpom predicts Villanova will win by a score of 72-58. Let us know your prediction in the comment thread below. Winner gets her name in bold-face, as always.
