Providence vs. Villanova moved to Sunday due to Winter Storm Jonas

The impending winter storm on the east coast has forced the game to be rescheduled.

For the second time in as many seasons, a Providence Friars game has been rescheduled due to a snowstorm.

While last season it was a Friars home game against DePaul, this year it is a road game against the Villanova Wildcats at the Wells Fargo Center.

Winter Storm Jonas is expected to dump 10 to 16 inches of snow on Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, so rescheduling the game was the only option the Big East had.

The other two east coast Big East games (Marquette vs. St. John's and Georgetown vs. UConn) are expected to go on as scheduled on Saturday, but if anything changes we will be sure to update this post.
