The fourth-ranked Villanova Wildcats will look to pursue their winning form as they prepare to clash against the Providence Friars in a Big East Conference set to be staged on Wednesday at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The Wildcats will attempt to sweep the two-game season series versus the Friars.

Villanova has swept last year’s two-game session as well and has beaten Providence in eight of its last nine contests with the latest back in a 78-68 win back in Philadelphia on January 21. Villanova did fail though to cover the 15-point spread. They went on to lose their next game to Marquette surrendering their top-ranked status in the process.

They did bounce back with a 61-59 victory against the 12th ranked Virginia Cavaliers on Sunday but the win wasn’t enough for them to keep their No. 1 rank which went to undefeated Gonzaga. They sit half a game in front of the Butler Bulldogs in the Big East, a team that handed the ‘Cats their first defeat of the year.

The Friars, who are 3.5 games behind Nova in the Conference tied for sixth place beat the Marquette Golden Eagles 78-72 last Saturday for the first time ever in Milwaukee since joining the Big East back in the 2005-06 season. The Friars rallied from a six-point deficit with 38 seconds left in the game for the unlikely 79-78 victory.

BetOnline has the Villanova listed as 9½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 134.
