VILLANOVA, Pa. - Only three matches remain on the season for the Villanova volleyball team (12-14, 4-9 BIG EAST) and all of them will occur in hostile environments against BIG EAST postseason bound squads. On Friday at noon, the Wildcats will travel to Xavier (18-9, 9-3 BIG EAST) before a 2:30 p.m. showdown at Butler (21-6, 8-4 BIG EAST) Saturday.
With both teams new to the BIG EAST, Villanova will make its first trip to Xavier's Cintas Center and Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse in the school's history. If the Wildcats are to come through on the road, they will need to improve their hitting pct. from a week ago.
Butler made a trip down to the Main Line last Saturday and defeated the Wildcats 25-7, 25-18, 25-17 behind a .376 attack from the field. On that night, freshman Claire Crutchfield finished with a team-high eight kills and Henley registered a match-high 16 digs.
