Team Previews

ABOUT VILLANOVA (18-6): The Wildcats survived against Marquette thanks to freshman Jeremiah Robinson-Earl's 17 points and 11 rebounds and Collin Gillespie's 14 points, including a clutch 3-pointer down the stretch. "I just try to be a leader and lead by example," said Gillespie, who has scored in double figures in 11 straight games and ranks second on the team in scoring (15.6) behind Saddiq Bey (15.7). Bey had only 10 points against Marquette but still knocked down multiple 3-pointers for the 10th time in 11 games.

ABOUT TEMPLE (13-11): The Owls needed six straight points from Quinton Rose down the stretch to slip past Tulane 72-68 in their last contest, with Rose finishing with 23 points and Monty Scott adding 16. Rose (16.2 points) is the team's leading scorer and has reached the 20-point mark in five of the last seven outings, plus he's grabbed eight rebounds in each of the last two games. Scott (6.0 points), who has contributed minimally for most of the season, has 38 points in the last two games and has made all nine of his foul shots over that span.
