DePaul @ Villanova

Current Records: DePaul 10-8; Villanova 14-5

What to Know

The #14 Villanova Wildcats are 11-0 against the DePaul Blue Demons since February of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Tuesday. The Wildcats and DePaul will face off in a Big East battle at 7 p.m. ET at Finneran Pavilion. Villanova should still be riding high after a victory, while DePaul will be looking to right the ship.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between Villanova and the Georgetown Hoyas this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Villanova wrapped it up with an 85-74 win on the road. Villanova got double-digit scores from four players: guard Collin Gillespie (28), guard Justin Moore (19), forward Jermaine Samuels (18), and guard Caleb Daniels (12).

Meanwhile, the Blue Demons ended up a good deal behind the Creighton Bluejays when they played this past Saturday, losing 60-47. Forward David Jones had a pretty forgettable game, picking up four fouls and turning the ball over six times en route to a 4-for-14, 9-point finish.

The Wildcats are the favorite in this one, with an expected 17.5-point margin of victory. There could be an interesting gambling play in this one, as they have done quite well against the spread at home this season while DePaul have struggled against the spread on the road.

DePaul's loss took them down to 10-8 while Villanova's victory pulled them up to 14-5. In Villanova's victory, Collin Gillespie shot 6-for-9 from beyond the arc and finished with 28 points and Jermaine Samuels had 18 points along with five rebounds. We'll see if DePaul have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
