Today In The BIG EAST - Aug. 22




PROVIDENCE, R.I. - There are three women's soccer teams in action on Monday as weekend weather pushed matches to today. Villanova will host St. Joseph's at 4 p.m. The Wildcats tied James Madison 1-1 in double overtime in their season-opener last Friday. St. John's will take on George Mason at 6 p.m. ET in Fairfax, Va. The Red Storm began playing on Sunday and held a 1-0 lead after 52 minutes before lightning interrupted play. Because the game was not restarted within three hours, it was cancelled and will be replayed from the beginning today. Rutgers begins the 2011 season against Drexel at 7 p.m. Severe weather in Piscataway on Sunday pushed the contest back 24 hours. The league totaled a record 12 wins during the NCAA Championship last season. In addition, a BIG EAST school has advanced to the NCAA College Cup 12 times in the past 16 years (since 1995). BIG EAST teams return 16 of 24 players named to the All-BIG EAST First and Second Teams following the 2010 season.
