Wildcats Continue to Roll

Wildcats continue to roll proving they are elite in the NCAA. The 8-7 Providence Friars took on the 3rd Ranked, Villanova Wildcats. Villanova (10-1) pulled off a 47 point second half en route to a 71-56 victory on Saturday.


Villanova trailed by three, 27-24 after the first half but stormed the Bastille in the second half to show why Jay Wright has them in the upper echelon of the NCAA.

Providence received double-doubles from Alyn Breed (11 boards and 18 points) as well as David Duke (11 rebounds to go with 10 points) with Nate Watson chipping in with 12 points. The output was not enough to secure a win in this one and ‘Nova countered with  Caleb Watson nailing 12 points complimented by Collin Gillespie’s 15.

The Wildcats were benefactors of a double double from Jermaine Samuels and his 10 point, 10 rebound game leader.
