Villanova, Maryland have never been No. 1

The two schools lead the nation in NCAA tournament wins without ever reaching No. 1 in the AP poll. Will either take the top spot in Monday's poll?

Villanova withstands late Providence rally (1:05)

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Providence was thoroughly outplayed by Villanova in the first 20 minutes. Friars fortunate to only be down 12 at the break. Dunn has six points (four in transition) and Bentil has two points and two fouls -- and largely ineffective with that ankle injury.

Big East-leading Cats tip at Providence

Ben Bentil is expected to play for 11th-ranked Providence after he left a game this week with an injured ankle. But Villanova's center Daniel Ochefu is expected to miss a third straight game (concussion). Follow live

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

After talking to Ben Bentil for a few minutes on the court, Providence coach Ed Cooley just told me that his big man WILL give it a go today against Villanova despite the ankle injury.
