No. 12 Virginia (16–3) at No. 1 Villanova (19–2)

Sunday, 1 p.m., Fox

This is the return of a home-and-home matchup that drops as a lovely present in late January. Virginia’s defense was exquisite on Tuesday, when the Cavaliers forced a high-powered Notre Dame squad to shoot 3 for 18 from three on its home floor. It’s a lot to ask for pull off a repeat performance against the defending champs who are coming off a disappointing loss, but I can’t wait to see them try.

Villanova 68, Virginia 63
