VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Darrun Hilliard scored a season-high 24 points to lead No. 4 Villanova to a 71-50 victory over Creighton on Sunday night.
Ryan Arcidiacono added 10 points for the Wildcats (18-2, 5-2 Big East), which rebounded from one of its worst performances of the season - Monday's 78-58 defeat at Georgetown. In that loss, the Wildcats had a season-low eight assists and were...

The past seven days were rough for the Philadelphia Big 5. Some things (Villanova losing to Georgetown by 20) change, and others (Penn losing to those same Wildcats by double digits) stay the same. The “conference” was 2-4 in play over the past week, and as we hit the end of January looking ahead to pivotal conference games in February, some schools are right where they need...
For the 4th season in a row the Villanova Wildcats have won the Big 5. On Saturday night they defeated Penn 62-47 at the Palestra to finish 4-0 in the city series. The game was a lot closer then the score indicates.

‘We don’t own the city,’ said Villanova head coach Jay Wright after the tough fought victory. ‘We just scrapped...

College football is over. (Congrats to Ohio State, and you all suck for making me eat crow about Ohio State not belonging there.)
The NFL season is not far from over. (Take Indianapolis +7 against New England this weekend. Just do it. Trust me.)

Watch out for Seton Hall this season. The Pirates are 12-2, winning games without star guard Isaiah Whitehead, and just handed Big East favorite No. 6 Villanova its first loss. With a three point lead and 14 seconds remaining in overtime, the aggressive Seton Hall defense baited Nova’s Ryan Arcidiacono into a very bad turnover, leading to a pile-up at midcourt, and eventually two...
Betting odds for the Villanova Wildcats' 2014-15 season.
Josh Hart scored 12 points and Phil Booth and Darrun Hilliard each had 11 to lead No. 10 Villanova to a 74-46 win over Saint Joseph's on Saturday.
The Wildcats (8-0) scored the first eight points, led by 15 only 6 minutes into the game and treated the rest of it like a glorified exhibition against one of their biggest rivals.
Villanova thumped Saint Joseph's 98-68 last year and...

Michigan was down a point to Villanova in the closing seconds. The Wolverines thought they had drawn up a game winning inbound play. It was great right up until JayVaughn Pinkston turned around and saved the day.

Every coach will remind you how early it is, even Villanova coach Jay Wright, who would have every right to point to his team's November/December returns and proclaim that, yes, his Wildcats really are the 14th-best team in the country and...
