Villanova can finish off a strong first week in the Big East with a win on Saturday afternoon. That win will have to come in one of the toughest venues that the conference has to offer.
Ed Cooley’s Providence teams always seem to play ‘Nova tough, and Saturday should be no exception. The seasons that both teams have experienced to date feel remarkably similar. There have been some highs, but there also some frustrations along the way.
Chief among them for Providence: an injury to star freshmen guard A.J. Reeves. He didn’t play against Creighton in a loss, and is looking doubtful to return against Villanova givent he original prognosis (4-6 weeks from December 11th).
Can Villanova take advantage of his absence and score a big win?
