First Meeting: The 1946 Orangemen were a solid bunch, going 23-4. One of the teams they beat in their march to glory was Villanova, whom they beat with the very apt score of 44-33 on January 26.

Last Meeting: The Orange lost 75-71 in overtime in the second showdown last season, ending the Big East portion of the rivalry bitterly.

Head Coaches: SU: Jim Boeheim (38th Year, 931-314); Villanova: Jay Wright (13th Year, 263-144)

If Syracuse Wins…: They'll have that really big quality win they've been waiting for. Discussions about whether or not the Orange deserve the No. 1 spot have more merit.

If Syracuse Loses…: Well, if we're going to do, we could do it to worse opponents...

Fun Fact: Nova is 14-14 in the Carrier Dome all-time and Jay Wright is 11-8 overall against SU.

Fun Fact 2: It's Ennis v. Ennis. Tyler Ennis will be going head-to-head with older brother Dylan Ennis. The winner is the Greatest Ennis. The loser is banned from Christmas next year.
