Villanova vs. Seton Hall Basketball to be played. Power restored to Campus.

Drew Hallowell

Villanova, along with some 600,000 estimated others, lost power for the majority of Wednesday. The trickle-down effect reached Ardmore and Broomall shortly after, and PECO released a statement explaining that this was not going to be an easy fix.

In the wake of the snow and ice that have paralyzed the Villanova Campus shutting it down for Thursday & Friday, the question of holding Friday's Big East game against the Seton Hall Pirates arose.

The men's basketball team practiced at the Haverford School, and the power went out there, so they practiced until it got dark, and then went to the Arcidiacono's (& Raftery's) houses for the night. The women's team was stuck in Providence an extra because their fligh could not arrive that night.

On Thursday morning, Director of Public Safety, Dave Tedjeske, emailed:

Electricity and heat have been restored to Main Campus, West Campus, and the Athletics Complex. Classes will resume on Monday, February 10. Additional updates will follow as appropriate.

Villanova Media Relations', Mike Sheridan, has followed that note up:

Power has been restored to the Villanova campus and Friday night’s basketball game against Seton Hall will be played as scheduled at the Pavilion at 7 p.m.

'Nova (20-2, 8-1) will look to extend their current 4-game win streak.
