Unfortunately for Villanova, there is two things working against them. The first is that they are the road team, and games away from Villanova Stadium have been problematic for the good guys this season, as they have lost both of them. Also, there may be some lingering resentment among Towson players for being left out of the playoffs in lieu of Villanova last season, even though their misfortune was the result of an established tiebreaker procedure.
Villanova cannot make mistakes in this game. Turnovers, penalties, drops, mental errors and the like will not bode well for them, so hope they come prepared.
The game will be on NBC Sports Network this Saturday at 7 PM.
