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

ABOUT DEPAUL (7-6): The Blue Demons have the second-worst record in the Big East entering league play, and their home losses to Wyoming and Missouri State by a combined 25 points can’t give the team much confidence heading into the showdown with Villanova. The team has shot under 30 percent overall and is 8-of-38 from 3-point range over its last two contests. Eli Cain averages a team-high 18.2 points and shoots respectably from the field (45.4 percent) and beyond the arc (40.3) but is 0-of-8 from long distance and 3-of-28 overall in his last two games.

ABOUT VILLANOVA (12-0): While Hart is the clear star for Villanova, the team has three other players who average at least 10.7 points and shoot at least 40 percent from 3-point range. Kris Jenkins and Jalen Brunson each average 12.8 points, although the former is just 12-of-39 over his last four games. Mikal Bridges chips in 10.7 points and is shooting 62 percent while remarkably making at least half his shots in every contest.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wildcats listed as 26.5-point favorites versus the Blue Demons, while the game’s total is sitting at 143 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Top-ranked Villanova passed every test that came its way during the non-conference portion of its schedule. The Wildcats begin league play against visiting DePaul on Wednesday looking to extend a run of domination that dates back to last season’s NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats’ 6-0 run during March Madness kicked off a stretch of 18 straight victories that continued with last Wednesday’s 42-point romp over American. Josh Hart continued to emerge as a National Player of the Year candidate with 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists – essentially his season averages – and shot at least 50 percent for the 10th time in 12 games. Villanova has won 44 straight contests at the Pavilion – two shy of the school record – and likely will continue that streak against a DePaul squad that is coming off back-to-back home losses to Wyoming and Missouri State. “I think we are ready for the Big East season,” Hart told reporters. “But we just have to keep getting better as we can.”

Villanova was a 90-48 winner in its last match at home against Eagles. They covered the -32-point spread as favorites.

DePaul was a 69-58 loser in its last match on the road against Bears. They failed to cover the +5.5-point spread as underdogs.
