Villanova Wildcats vs Providence Friars
Third-ranked Villanova will begin a difficult stretch of playing four of its next five games on the road with a trip to Providence Wednesday night at the Dunkin Donuts Center.
The Wildcats (23-2, 10-2 Big East) defeated Butler 86-75 on Saturday to guarantee their sixth straight season of recording at least 10 league wins. Providence is 16-9 overall and 7-5 in the league.
