 The American Eagles and the Villanova Wildcats will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Villanova Pavilion.

ABOUT AMERICAN (3-7): Sa’eed Nelson had a team-high 16 points in Monday’s win over Maryland-Eastern Shore, while Mark Gasperini added 12 points. Nelson, a freshman guard, is averaging 16.8 points and has scored at least 16 in four straight games. Gasperini is a freshman, as well, and is looking for his eighth straight game in double figures as his average has increased to 12 points per game.

ABOUT VILLANOVA (11-0): The Wildcats have given up more than 66 points only three times in 11 games and limited Temple to 36.7 percent shooting (and only six foul shots) in last week’s 78-57 victory. Hart’s latest strong effort was complemented by 13 points from Jalen Brunson and 12 apiece from Kris Jenkins and Eric Paschall. Jenkins, the hero from last season’s national championship game, was 4-of-6 from 3-point range versus the Owls and has knocked down multiple 3-pointers in nine of the team’s 11 games.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wildcats listed as 32-point favorites versus the Eagles, while the game’s total is sitting at 131.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Villanova was a 78-57 winner in their most recent outing at home against Owls. They covered the -14.5-point spread as favorites.

American was a 61-58 winner in their most recent outing at home against Hawks.

Villanova has accomplished just about everything a team would want in 2016 – a national championship, an 11-0 start this season, a No. 1 ranking at the moment, and a talented roster that seems to be maximizing its potential. All of that spells bad news for American, which visits Villanova on Wednesday evening.

This is the final tuneup before Big East play for Villanova, which has won 17 in a row dating to last season and will be taking the court for the first time in eight days. Josh Hart scored 26 points in last Tuesday’s win over Temple and is averaging 20.1 points on the season and 28 over the last three games. “He makes the right play every time,” Wildcats guard Mikal Bridges said. “If he sees an opening, he goes strong, aggressive. If somebody steps up, he’s going to make the pass.” Hart has a chance to win National Player of the Year and can continue to bolster his case with a strong performance against American, which has won two in a row since starting the season 1-7.
