Marquette preps for Villanova Saturday

After a loss to St. John's earlier this week , the Marquette Golden Eagles get set to welcome in Villanova for the first of two meetings this month between the programs.

Saturday's meeting will be important for the Big East championship race, as Villanova holds a two-game lead on Marquette in the standings at 10-0 to 8-2 for the Golden Eagles (thanks to two losses to St. John's). While a win for Villanova doesn't guarantee them a regular-season title, it puts three games between the Wildcats and their nearest competition heading into the homestretch of the season.

Saturday is also National Marquette Day, further raising the stakes for an already-important conference contest.
