PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Villanova Wildcats hope to beat their third top-five opponent of the season when they play No. 5 Georgetown on Wednesday.
Villanova already beat then-No. 5 Louisville and then-No. 3 Syracuse. Throw in a win a month later against nationally-ranked Marquette, and the unranked Wildcats have proven themselves one of the better unranked teams against Top 25 opponents this season.
Any confidence they've gained can only help against a Hoyas team fueled by Otto Porter Jr. that's riding an 11-game winning streak and playing for a No. 1 seed in both the Big East and NCAA tournaments.
The Wildcats finished 13-19 last season and missed the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004. They are 18-12 this season and 9-8 in the Big East.
