Despite the snow causing problems all over the east coast, it may actually help #4 Villanova when #16 Providence comes to town. With the game being delayed by roughly 24 hours, it should allow more fans the opportunity to make it to the Wells Fargo Center.
Kris Dunn and Ben Bentil form the best 1-2 punch in the conference, but the Friars depth will be tested by the Wildcats, winners of 22 straight in the Big East dating back to January 19th, 2015. Jay Wright can count on any number of players to step up, but lately it's been Josh Hart who is making a serious case to challenge Dunn for Big East Player of the Year.
Providence hasn't yet beaten Villanova in the new-look Big East, but there's no doubt they have the talent to finally get the W. Expect a great game.

Couldn't believe my luck when I found a six-pack of this today at the store. I've seen it at a couple of bars, but never bottled down in these parts. The only downside is I'll be through all six by halftime - these are that good!
I know it's probably snowing where you are and you can't grab these, but hopefully you were smart enough to stock up and bunker down beforehand!
