I was as shocked to see it in the standings as the next guy, but Providence has stormed back to life after struggling with injuries for much of the season. When the Friars come to the Wells Fargo Center tonight, first place in the Big East is on the line.
Credit where credit is due: Ed Cooley has done a fantastic job keeping this group together while they get healthy, and they seem to present a challenge for Villanova more often than not. Meanwhile, the ‘Cats seem locked in and are getting healthy in their own right.
Jalen Brunson and Kyron Cartwright should be a fun battle of the two best point guards in the conference. Villanova isn’t a one-man team, but if Brunson can get the better of this matchup, that likely bodes really well for Villanova’s chances.

Drink That Guarantees The W: 7 Leguas Añejo
Whoops, this is what happens when I wind up in a foreign country. I get roped into flights of liquor. My (customer) hosts were gracious enough to show us a good time and I woul have felt bad declining. This was my favorite from the...I lost count of how many we tried.
It’s back on the wagon once I’m back in the States, but for now it’s tequila time.
