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.
No. 22 Villanova continues climb as Xavier visits

Villanova wasn't feeling so great about itself in mid-December after suffering back-to-back losses against Penn and Kansas.

But the mood feels much different one month later.

The No. 22 Wildcats (13-4, 4-0 Big East) are thriving these days and look to record their sixth straight victory when they host Xavier (11-7, 3-2) on Friday night in a conference matchup.

Villanova began to right itself with an 81-58 trouncing of Connecticut on Dec. 22 and continued its surge with four straight conference wins, the latest being a 90-78 road win over Creighton on Sunday.

Senior guard Phil Booth has been one of the catalysts of the turnaround. He had 28 points and seven assists against Creighton and is averaging 24.7 points over the past three outings.

"He's got an incredible humility about him," Wildcats coach Jay Wright said. "When you need him, he's there. If you don't need him, he's doing all the little things and not complaining. It's what makes him a great leader and a great player."

Booth is averaging a team-leading 18.2 points and is receiving plenty of help from senior power forward Eric Paschall, who averages 16.5 points and a team-best 6.4 rebounds.

Paschall scored 21 points against Creighton for his fourth 20-point effort in the past five games. He is averaging 20.8 points during the stretch.

While Wright certainly appreciates the duo's efforts, he's worried about being too reliant on the pair. He is hoping to see some other players step up during the second half of the season.

"It's what we need if we're going to be a good team," Wright said. "Phil and E can't carry us the whole season -- they'll get worn down."

Xavier is looking to get on a roll of its own and it has shown life with back-to-back victories over Georgetown and Butler.

The Musketeers recorded the wins despite the absence of junior point guard Quentin Goodwin, who is in danger of missing his third straight game due to a knee injury.

"He's rehabbing," Xavier coach Travis Steele told reporters. "Hopefully we'll get him back here soon. But if not, it's next man up. I love the mentality our guys have had when he's been out."

Sophomore guard Paul Scruggs has filled in at the point the past two games and it certainly hasn't hurt his production. He knocked down a career-high five 3-pointers while recording 23 points, eight rebounds and six assists in Sunday's 70-69 win over Butler.

"Yeah, I'm comfortable," Scruggs told reporters after the contest. "I knew what I had to do so I just stepped up in that role."

Scruggs and sophomore forward Naji Marshall share the team scoring leadership at 13.2 points per game. Marshall averages a team-best 7.5 rebounds.

Senior guard Kyle Castlin was a surprise standout in the Butler contest with a season-best 12 points to go with seven rebounds. Castlin played 35 minutes after playing a total of 42 in Xavier's previous four games.

"He was much more decisive than he was the previous four or five games," Steele said of Castlin. "You could tell he was gonna shoot when he caught the ball. He didn't think about it, even on his drives."

Villanova has dominated the series with four straight victories and holds a 26-5 edge.
