High Expecations for Villanova This Season
Last season Villanova didn’t live up to the expectations but they are even higher for this season. In the first game, Villanova faced off against American and they were really good looking. Villanova scored 90 points and that was enough for the 27 point victory. Villanova was led Eric Dixon and he finished with 15 points, six rebounds, and four assists. There were five different players that finished at least 10 points. Villanova shot 54.2 percent from the field and 37 percent from behind the three point line.
Le Moyne’s Defense Struggled in Game 1
Le Moyne faced off against Georgetown in the first game and they really struggled. At halftime the Dolphins were down 47-23 and they never bounced back on the way to the 94-57 defeat. One issue that Le Moyne is probably going to have all season is they don’t have a star that they can really lean on. Kaiyem Clearly was the top player finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, and one assist. There were five different players that scored at least eight, but no one scored more than 11.
Shane’s Free Pick
This is going to be a blowout victory for Villanova. In the first game Villanova scored 90 points, and Le Moyne in ther first game gave up 94 points. It’s going to be a balanced attack again for Villanova lead by another big game from Dixon. Villanova is going to get close to 100 points, and without the start player of Le Moyne, they just aren’t going to have enough scoring to keep this game close. Back Villanova against the spread.
