The Villanova Wildcats (5-2) will play the No. 10 Missouri Tigers (7-0) this week on Dec. 6 in the 2011 Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden. Villanova will try to ruin Missouri's best start since the 2006-2007 season when the teams meet in the Garden. Missouri won the only game between the two teams in 1985 at the Rainbow Classic in Hawaii. Marquette plays Washington in the second game of the Jimmy V Classic following the Villanova-Missouri matchup.
