Live chat: Villanova vs. Missouri


Time: 7:00 p.m. EST
Venue: Madison Square Garden, New York, N.Y.
TV: ESPN (Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas)

No matter the time of year, it's always a big deal when Villanova heads up to Madison Square Garden for a game. Join me from courtside for live updates and commentary as the Wildcats face a tough test from the Missouri Tigers, who are ranked No. 10 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll.

It's worth remembering that this night is about more than just basketball. This game is part of the Jimmy V Classic. So you will see a lot of reminders about Jim Valvano's legacy, and the foundation which bears his name.

Whether you root for Villanova or not, the quest to find a cure for cancer is something that everyone supports - especially here in Philadelphia, where the local Coaches vs. Cancer chapter is one of the strongest in the nation.

Now let's play some basketball. If you're on a mobile device, click here to follow along and post comments.
