With its dominating personality reestablished after an impressive run of Big East Conference home games, No. 9 Villanova will hit the road to implement what it learned about itself.
The Wildcats (15-3, 5-1) will head to Providence for a Saturday afternoon clash against a Friars team that is in the midst of a demanding run of ranked opponents. Villanova will be the third of four consecutive ranked conference opponents for the Friars (11-9, 4-3), who stumbled in the last two challenges.
Villanova will bring with it a five-game winning streak, the last four of those at home. The most recent victory was an impressive 76-61 takedown of then-No. 13 Butler.
