Villanova guard Corey Stokes is expected to start tonight against Syracuse at the Wells Fargo Center, coach Jay Wright said.
Stokes has missed the last three games with a foot injury. Villanova is 2-1 in those games.
Wright cautioned that it is possible Stokes could take part in pregame warmups and decide that he cannot play.
Stokes is the team's second-leading scorer at 14.6 points per game.
Game time is 7 p.m. on ESPN.
