The Villanova Women’s Basketball team suffered their first loss against Creighton on Thursday, the Wildcats responded with a comeback victory against Providence. Sophomore Mary Gedaka received a spot on the Big East Weekly Honor Roll after averaging 15.5 points per game in the last two games.

The top 10 stayed the same save for Ohio State taking the #10 spot after a West Virginia loss knocked them down to #12. Stanford re-entered the polls at #24 after falling out of the poll last week, ending their streak of being in the AP Top 25 for 312 consecutive weeks.

‘Nova remains the only Big East team in the Top 25, and Depaul was the only other Big East team mentioned after receiving exactly one point.

Villanova continues Big East play with two home games this week, first against Butler on Tuesday at 7:00 PM and finishing off the week with Xavier on Friday at 7:00 PM.
