The NCAA brings more action today as the Villanova Wild Cats will clash with the Canisius Golden Griffins for a place in the semifinals Villanova fell 76-68 in overtime at home to Furman Saturday in their last game. On the other side, Canisius was lost with a score of 93-61 on the road by #14 Florida State in their last game Monday night.
Villanova Wildcats Form
The Wildcats are the team that is defending the title but it seems that they have a slight drop of form lately.
The Wildcats are in a transition process as they are aiming to find the right balance in replacing key players from last year’s title team.
On the offensive side of the game, the Wildcats have been averaging 75 points per game so far this season. Their rebounds average stands at 42 per game with an average of 115.5 assists per game
On the defensive side of the game, their average stands at 69.8 points per game so far this season.
Phil Booth is the leader of the team this season as the record stands at 17.3 points per game.
Villanova is hitting 10.3 three-pointers a game but hit only 32 per cent of their attempts. The Wildcats are struggling at the line, converting only 66 per cent of their chances.
Canisius Golden Griffins Form
The Golden Griffins had a good start of the year but they have lost two since that opening. They were beaten fair and square by Florida State on Monday and it seems that they will need to regroup in order to get something out of this game. However, on the bright side, Malik Johnson had a solid performance as he scored 20 points in this defeat.
On the offensive side of the game, the Griffins have an average record of 69.7 points per game. Also, they have an average of 11.7 assists per game so far this season.
On the defensive side of the game, they have been conceding an average of 80.3 points per game.
Takal Molson is the leader of this time as he is scoring an average of 21.3 points combined with 5.3 rebounds per game.
Villanova suffered a couple of defeats at the hands of Michigan and Furman. They have dropped their form lately but they are still a very good team and the defending champion. They have the quality and I believe that Canisius does not have the quality to match them at the moment. That is why I expect a Villanova win in this game.
