In between 12 hours of football, there is one must-watch basketball game on New Year's Day:
Villanova at Marquette
These two teams are complete mirror images of one another - they have guard-dominated lineups, one much-improved post player (Dante Cunningham and Lazar Howard, respectively) and they love to run and shoot threes. Villanova is a little better defensively and is great in transition, but that could get wiped out by the Golden Eagles' recent hot shooting. In the end, expect a high-scoring game and expect Marquette - who is a little more battle-tested at this point in the season and who has more depth inside - to come out on top.
