2.6 Around The Big East

Villanova: redefining "crazy cat lady" since 1920. - Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Only one game last night, but it involved two members of The Seven, so it's not all bad.

Villanova 94, DePaul 71 - Hey, this was a fun first half. Villanova led by as many as seven at one point, but DePaul came roaring back. There were seven ties and three lead changes, and most importantly - scoring! It was locked up at 40 at the half! And then Nova hit their first seven shots of the second half. In fact, they hit on 69% of their shots in the second half, including going 6-7 behind the arc. Ballgame, y'all. Six Wildcats hit for double figures led by Ryan Arcidiacono with 23. Cleveland Melvin had 19 to lead the Blue Demons.

For a team that owns wins over Syracuse and Louisville, this was actually a pretty important win for Villanova. They're sitting at 5-5 in the Big East, and as the only team at .500, they're somehow in 10th place. While the presence of Connecticut in the standings means that the Wildcats are currently the 9 seed in the Big East tournament. More importantly, they've got a full two game lead on Providence for the "honor" of being the best team that will be playing on the first day of the tournament.
