XAVIER: Last season: 29-6, lost to Florida State in second round of NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Musketeers.
Coach: Travis Steele.
Conference: Big East.
Who's gone: Coach Chris Mack (Louisville), guard Trevon Bluiett, guard J.P. Macura, forward Kerem Kanter, forward Kaiser Gates, forward Sean O'Mara.
Who's back: Junior point guard Quentin Goodin (8.7 point per game) is Xavier's most experienced returning player and will be one of the team's leaders, along with sophomore forward Naji Marshall, who started 18 games last season. Marshall averaged 7.7 points and is Xavier's most diverse offensive player. Forward Tyrique Jones (7 ppg, 4.5 rebounds) is counted on to play a bigger scoring role on the front line. Sophomore guard Paul Scruggs (4.9 ppg) also moves into an expanded role.
Who's new: Three graduate students. Forward Zach Hankins set school records for blocked shots and field goal percentage at Ferris State. Guard Ryan Welage set the school record for 3-pointers in three seasons at San Jose State. Guard Kyle Castlin is a team captain after coming over from Columbia, where he averaged 10.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
The Skinny: Xavier is in a transition season with a new head coach and a significantly different roster. The Musketeers lost five of their top seven scorers including Bluiett, who averaged 19.3 points per game. Xavier was ranked as high as No. 3 last season, won its first Big East regular season title and got its first No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament before blowing a 12-point lead and losing in the second round. Steele was Mack's top assistant and moved up when Mack went to Louisville.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Xavier as a long shot to win the NCAA Tournament at 120-1, on par with Louisville, St. John's and Butler. Defending national champion Villanova is one of the top favorites at 10-1.
VILLANOVA: Last season: 36-4, won third national championship in school history.
Nickname: Wildcats
Coach: Jay Wright
Conference: Big East
Who's gone: Point guard Jalen Brunson, F Omari Spellman, F Mikal Bridges, G Donte DiVincenzo are all in the NBA.
Who's back: Guard Phil Booth, the last major link to the 2016 title team, returns for a fifth season. He averaged 10 points and made 10 starts for the Big East Tournament title team. He's going to be counted on to lead a team that will try and develop four sophomores into stars. Collin Gillespie, Jermaine Samuels, Dylan Painter and Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree all need to emerge into solid rotation players for the Wildcats to have a shot at a repeat.
Who's new: Freshman Jahvon Quinerly, a five-star recruit, is expected to follow Brunson as Villanova's next great point guard and graduate transfer Joe Cremo is expected to provide needed depth after he scored 1,469 points in three years at Albany.
The Skinny: The Wildcats are ranked ninth in The AP Top 25 and should again contend to win the Big East. The Wildcats are reloading after losing four stars to the NBA. But an elite program like Villanova just replaces talent with talent and the Wildcats are expected to keep rolling deep into March.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Villanova as a 10-1 shot to win the NCAA Tournament. But no team has been able to repeat since Florida in 2006 and 2007.
Xavier next up for No. 25 Villanova in Big East tourney

Defending national champion Villanova will look to move one step closer to playing for its third consecutive Big East tournament championship when it battles Xavier in a semifinal Friday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The No. 25-ranked and top-seeded Wildcats improved to 23-9 with a 73-62 victory over eighth-seeded Providence on Thursday. It is the fifth straight season Villanova has won in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament.

Eric Paschall led the way with 20 points and 10 rebounds, Collin Gillespie added 19 points and Phil Booth had 13 in the win.

"I think we beat a good team," Villanova coach Jay Wright told reporters after the game. "(Xavier has) played well over the last five or six games. It wasn't pretty, but I'm proud of our guys."

Villanova received a major boost from forward Cole Swider, who was injured for a large chunk of the season. Swider contributed five points in 15 minutes.

"Cole missed six weeks and he really hasn't played much in a game since he got hurt," Wright told reporters. "I thought he did a great job for not having played in a game in seven or eight weeks."

Paschall and Gillespie each set career highs for points in a Big East tournament game and the Wildcats improved to 12-2 in the event since 2013-14. One more win will put them in position to contend for a tournament championship again.

"Our whole team has had a great attitude," Paschall told reporters. "And we're taking a step in the right direction."

Fourth-seeded Xavier, meanwhile, improved to 18-14 with an exciting 63-61 victory over fifth-seeded Creighton, which had won five in a row.

Zach Hankins paced the Musketeers with 22 points, including a late offensive rebound and basket to help secure a spot in the semifinals. Kyle Castlin then blocked a potential game-winning shot by Ty-Shon Alexander to preserve the victory.

Hankins scored 12 of his 22 points in the final 7:11.

"It sunk in some on the court when they grabbed me for an interview on the court," Hankins told reporters. "I almost teared up some. I've got to take it all in and realize where I come from and what I just did."

"He was wide open," Castlin, who transferred to Xavier from Columbia, told reporters of Alexander on the final shot. "I knew I just had to put it all on the line and try to seal the game."

Xavier and Villanova split a pair of games this season as each team won at home. But the spotlight of the Big East tournament will be much greater.

"We've just got to play as hard as we possibly can, leave it all out there, no regrets mentality and be the attacking team," Xavier head coach Travis Steele told reporters.

The Musketeers will also need another strong game from leading scorer Naji Marshall, who started and had 11 points and eight rebounds after missing the regular-season finale with a sore ankle. Marshall scored just one point in the second half, however.
