Villanova at Notre Dame, 7:00PM ET

Villanova's chances for a top-four seed in the Big East tournament took a big hit in an upset loss its last time out, but its spot in the NCAA tournament isn't in question.

Notre Dame is hoping it won't need a big run in New York City to say the same.

The 10th-ranked Wildcats will try to bounce back from their ugliest offensive performance of the season Monday night when they visit the Fighting Irish, who have a second chance in three days to knock off a league heavyweight.

Villanova (23-6, 11-5) had won nine of 10 games from Jan. 24-Feb. 25 to give itself a serious chance to crack the Big East's top four, a feat that would give it a double bye into the quarterfinals of the conference tournament at Madison Square Garden.

But the possibility of trading places with Marquette or Pittsburgh among the league's elite were hurt on Saturday. The Wildcats shot 33.3 percent - 18.8 percent (3-for-16) from 3-point range - in a 56-54 home loss to Georgetown, which had lost nine of its previous 11.

Baylor at Texas, 9:00PM ET

Texas had appeared to be gaining momentum heading into the Big 12 tournament, but looked flat in its last game. A game against Baylor should help it get back on track.

The 25th-ranked Longhorns look to bounce back from their latest loss and beat the in-state rival Bears for the 24th straight time Monday in Austin.

Texas (19-9, 8-6) entered Saturday's game at Oklahoma State winners of four of five, but suffered a 68-59 loss to the Cowboys.

The Longhorns rallied from a 17-point second-half deficit and had three chances to tie the score in the final four minutes, but failed to take advantage each time.
