Tonight Villanova will take on the Towson Tigers at the Palestra in Philadelphia as a part of the Philly Hoop Group Classic. This is their first game of bracket play, meaning that if they win, Nova will play the winner of Penn St./Rhode Island tomorrow.
I'll be honest, I don't know anything about Towson's team or the university in general. Head over to Villanova by the Numbers for an in-depth preview. However, through my extensive online research I discovered that Towson's dance team has won nine consecutive national championships. So they got that going for them, which is nice.
Basically this should be another easy win for Villanova. The game is scheduled for 8:30 pm, but may start a little late because of the earlier games in the Palestra. There is no television coverage, but Nova Nation All-Access will have the radio broadcast.
