Let's face it, Villanova is not the most likely team to hand Syracuse their first loss of the season. They really aren't even all that likely to provide much of a challenge.
But, sometimes it's easier to find things when you're not looking, and nobody is looking at the Wildcats to pull the upset.
Villanova has traditionally played well against Syracuse, but this is the greatest talent gap in Jay Wright's tenure, and it is by far his least experienced team. They have also lost against every good opponent they've played, and usually not in competitive fashion.
With that said, anything can happen in the Big East and there are ways Villanova can keep themselves in the game.
