Villanova practiced yesterday at Finneran Pavilion, the first drill since Dec. 27, when the Cats paused due to COVID-19 positive results among Tier 1 staff members.
Coach Jay Wright has participated in virtual team and staff meetings throughout the past week as he continues his recovery away from the team. He remains on target to rejoin the team on tomorrow for its Big East game at DePaul.
The Wildcats (8-1 overall, 3-0 BIG EAST) last played Dec, 23, an 85-68 victory at Marquette. Villanova is ranked at No. 4 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 and No. 3 in the USA Today Coaches poll.
The game at DePaul tips off at just after 7 p.m. eastern time at Wintrust Arena. It will air on FS1 and 95.7 Ben FM.
