Villanova and Providence look to move on in the Big East Tournament as they meet on Friday night.
The teams split the season series and needed big 2nd halves to move on.
The Friars took down Butler, thanks to a hot start in both the first and second half to eventually pull away. The Wildcats struggled early, but did start finding their range in the 2nd half to pull away for a double digit win.
The 4th seeded Friars loved the sight of Ben Bentil going off in the win over Butler.
This team’s success really depends on his play and if the game against Butler was any indication, the Friars could be in store for an upset here. Bentil finished with 38 points on 16 of 24 shooting. He caught fire right from the beginning and never stopped creating his own space.
Bentil also added 8 rebounds and 2 blocks as his performance was complete all around.
Providence has won 4 straight games and has the offense clicking. They’ve scored at least 40 points in all 4 wins.
The Wildcats went through a rough patch in the first half against the Hoyas, but eventually found their way midway through the 2nd half and took off.
Villanova ran away with a 14 point win over the Hoyas as it was Josh Hart who led the way with 25 points. Nova is now just two wins away from defending their Big East title.
The status of Daniel Ochefu continues to linger, which could be a major problem for the inside presence for Nova.
Ochefu tweaked his ankle against the Hoyas and played just 13 minutes in the win. It puts the Wildcats in a very tough situation. If he tries to play through it, the situation could get worse. They may want to rest him and get him set for the tourney, but winning the Big East could be what this team needs to get a #1 seed.

Free Providence Friars vs. Villanova Wildcats CBB Prediction:
The Wildcats and Friars both like to get out and shoot the 3 ball.
This could come down to who gets in rhythm quicker and with the past few games, it’s been Villanova who has been on fire. Look for them to try and impose their will behind the arc early and often.
