NOVA’S BIGGEST WEEK: AT BUTLER AND HOME TO SETON HALL

By Harry Allison

Villanova was thumped last Saturday at home by Creighton, dropping them to 17-4 and to No. 10 from No. 8 in the AP ranking.

And the Cats face a tough week:

At No. 19 Butler tomorrow night and home to No. 12 Seton Hall on Saturday, both Big East powers.

But perhaps Jay Wright’s team is getting them at the right time.

The Wildcats handled Butler by 15 a few weeks ago, and the Bulldogs have been slumping over the past six games.

Seton Hall just lost for the first time since mid-December and starting guard and lockdown defender Quincy McKnight could miss time after landing awkwardly Saturday.

Villanova’s loss to Creighton is likely a blip; Saddiq Bey (above) and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl both had their worst offensive games in weeks, and the Bluejays shot 50% from both 2 and 3.
