Villanova-Providence Preview

(AP) -- Ben Bentil's importance to Providence was evident in a surprising win over Villanova two weeks ago, and perhaps more so in a stunning loss last time out.

With their star forward's status in doubt, the No. 11 Friars attempt to bounce back from a defeat as they host a third-ranked Wildcats team intent on avenging its lone Big East loss in Saturday's rematch.

The Friars were flying high after snapping Villanova's 22-game conference winning streak with a thrilling 82-76 overtime victory in Philadelphia on Jan. 24. That signature win has been followed by two losses in a three-game stretch, including Tuesday's 77-70 defeat at DePaul in which Bentil - the Big East leader at 19.7 points per game -sat out the second half with a sprained right ankle.
