The Friars clipped the ‘Cats at the WFC last year, but dont expect a repeat.

The Villanova Wildcats are just chugging along, winners of four straight since their lone defeat of the season. They’ll host the Providence Friars on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Friars, despite losing Kris Dunn and Ben Bentil to the NBA Draft, have exceeded expectations so far this season. They aren’t great by any stretch - ‘Nova is favored by 17 - but they’ve shown the ability to be pesky behind Kyron Cartwright and Rodney Bullock.

They’ve also lost to DePaul and Boston College. So yeah.

Pineapple juice & vodka over champagne

I’m poolside for a little R&R, I’ve secured the bar television, and this is the house cocktail. It seems like it may cause issues later in the day but f*ck it, we’re on vacation!
