The latest in a long list of things you wouldn’t expect during the 2020-21 college basketball season, Villanova and Providence underwent a halftime delay Saturday due to a sun glare.
That’s right, an indoor basketball game was paused because of a sun glare.

After a short delay — extending the halftime break — the game resumed with Gus Johnson and Jim Jackson on the call on Fox. Providence took a 27-24 lead over No. 3 Villanova after 20 minutes.
Twitter had plenty of fun with the strange delay:
The Big East chimed in as well:
Just another day in the wild world of college basketball.
