No. 4 Xavier hosts No. 3 Villanova in marquee clash

It's been a historic season for the Xavier, but as the No. 4 Musketeers try to lock down their first Big East Conference title and a possible No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, they'll have to find a way to topple No. 3 Villanova on Saturday afternoon in Cincinnati at the Cintas Center.

Xavier (24-3, 12-2 Big East) holds a 1 1/2-game lead over the defending national champions, who have dominated the current incarnation of the Big East since it formed 2013.

During that stretch, the Musketeers have had little, if any, luck against head coach Jay Wright's squad, dropping nine of 10 meetings to the Wildcats, including three during the 2014-15 season.
