Defensively, Villanova is holding their opponents to an average of 67.1 ppg on 43.5% shooting from the field. The Wildcats have a rebound margin of 2.4 and a turnover margin of 0.8. Villanova was able to defeat Providence in both their regular season games as the Wildcats on by a 65-59 margin o the road in early January while winning by an 85-67 margin at home in mid-February. I just don't see Providence being able to keep up offensively, I think Villanova wins 3 straight against Providence and covers the 6 points today.

VU Hoops: Villanova Basketball opens the Big East Tournament against Ed Cooley and the Providence Friars
Happy Game Day Nova Nation! Your Villanova Wildcats will play in their first game of the Big East Tournament today against a Providence Friars team that stomped all over Butler last night. Both of Villanova's games against the Friars have had nail biter moments, and the final scores certainly weren't indicative of how these games played out. A big reason for that is Providence's head coach Ed Cooley.
If Jay Wright is the best coach in the Big East, Cooley may be a close second. In seven years with the Friars, he's had them in the NCAA Tournament the past five seasons.

VU Hoops: Villanova Basketball vs Providence: Big East Tournament Preview
Alright. After a week of anticipation in lieu of having any Villanova Wildcats basketball to watch, we now know that the 'Cats are set to go up against the Providence Friars in their noon tip-off game this afternoon. But what exactly do this season's version of the Friars have in store for the 'Cats?
For one, they're young. By no means are they Georgetown young, but two of the Friars' starting guards(they play a four-guard lineup) are their top two recruits from the Class of 2018, A.J. Reeves and David Duke. Senior Isaiah Jackson adds experience to the backcourt, while junior Alpha Diallo adds that plus a healthy heaping of star-power on top.
