Noteworthy Juice

Villanova is heading into this evening’s game looking to bounce back from their early season mishap-laden loss to Michigan on Wednesday. Losing to the Wolverines 46-73, the Wildcats have a multitude of lessons to keep in mind for this upcoming game. Tightening defense, creating shot space, maintaining a flow in transition—coach Jay Wright’s team has a lot of mental markers to check. Leading the offensive efforts will likely be seniors Eric Paschall and Phil Booth. Booth currently leads scoring for ‘Nova, averaging 16.3 points.

Furman has experienced more early success than Villanova, with the Paladins starting their season 4-0. Notably, Furman bested recent NCAA Tournament darling Loyola-Chicago 60-58 on November 9th. For the Paladins, expect high shooting levels from junior Jordan Lyons. In Furman’s latest game against North Greenville, Lyons broke the NCAA record for three-pointers attempted (34), and tied the record for 15 three-pointers made. Lyons ended the night with 54 points in Furman’s 107-67 victory.
