Double Dose Of BIG EAST Women’s Basketball
For the first time this season, two BIG EAST women’s basketball games will be televised on national television. Providence will travel to St. John’s on Saturday before DePaul hosts Creighton on Sunday. Both games can be seen on FOX Sports 1, with tipoff at Carnesecca Arena slated for 12:30 p.m., and at McGrath-Phillips Arena at 1 p.m. (Eastern).
Watch The Drama Unfold
For three of the final four weeks of the regular season, fans can watch two BIG EAST women’s basketball games every week on FOX Sports 1. Following this weekend’s national television showcase, two games will be aired on Feb. 23 and on March 1. BIG EAST Tournament seeding and a regular-season title is bound to be at stake in the games, as all five of the teams currently in the top half of the conference standings are slated to appear on FOX Sports 1 in the coming weeks.
Rematches We’re Watching
Two of the most intriguing games of the weekend are on Sunday afternoon. Following an 86-78 win at home over DePaul, Creighton will travel to Chicago for Game 2 of the season series. The Blue Demons have won eight of nine since that setback, while the Bluejays are just 3-3 in BIG EAST road games this season. Villanova-Seton Hall will tipoff an hour later (2 p.m.). The Wildcats have won four straight while the Pirates have dropped three games in a row. SHU upset Villanova, 64-56, on its home court in a nationally televised game.
