The #10 Wildcats Pull off the win, 68-60. The Villanova Wildcats (10-3) welcomed the UConn Huskies (10-6) to the Arena in what was a battle. The first half was an absolute classic that unveiled 8 ties and 12 lead changes.

Tyrese Martin helped out and just missed a double double of his own with 9 points and 11 boards. RJ Cole chipped in 10 in the defeat. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl led the ‘Nova brigade with a double double of his own ( 17 points, 11 rebounds).
Justin Moore and Jermaine Samuels added 11 points each but the big gun for the Wildcats was Collin Gillespie with his 20 point affair.
