The Lafayette Leopards and the Villanova Wildcats will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Villanova Pavilion.

ABOUT LAFAYETTE (2015: 6-24): The Leopards will center their offense around forward Matt Klinewski and guards Monty Boykins and Nick Lindner. Klinewski and Lindner tied for the team lead in scoring (13.3 points) a season ago, while Lindner averaged a team-high four assists and is fourth on the school’s all-time assists list. Boykins averaged 10.7 points and is the team’s top returning 3-point shooter with 54 made a season ago.

ABOUT VILLANOVA (2015: 35-5): The Wildcats drained 16 3-pointers in their most recent preseason tuneup – a 94-49 victory over Indiana University of Pennsylvania as Hart deposited 27 points in 30 minutes. Hart averaged a team-high 15.5 points last season while Jenkins chipped in 13.6 and Jalen Brunson added 9.6 points and 2.5 assists. Villanova will have to replace the man who set the key pick on the championship-winning play (Daniel Ochefu) and the man who tossed the ball to Jenkins for the legendary shot (Ryan Arcidiacano), although Phil Booth and Mikal Bridges appear poised to take on bigger roles.
