Current Records: Howard 3-0; Villanova 1-1
What to Know
The Howard Bison are on the road again on Tuesday and play against the #4 Villanova Wildcats at 6:30 p.m. ET Nov. 16 at Finneran Pavilion. The Bison should still be riding high after a win, while Villanova will be looking to regain their footing.
Howard strolled past the Bradley Braves with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the contest 76-64.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats came up short against the UCLA Bruins this past Friday, falling 86-77. Villanova’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of forward Jermaine Samuels, who shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and finished with 20 points and five rebounds, and guard Collin Gillespie, who had 18 points.
Howard is now a perfect 3-0 while Villanova sits at 1-1. Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Bison come into the matchup boasting the 18th most steals per game in college basketball at 5.2. But the Wildcats rank 10th in college basketball when it comes to steals given up per game, with only four on average. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
