No. 12 Villanova Beats Saint Joseph’s 71-60

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) — Antonio Pena had 14 points and a career-high 14 rebounds, Corey Stokes scored 17 and No. 12 Villanova beat Saint Joseph’s 71-60 on Friday night.

Five different players scored for the Wildcats (6-1) during a 13-0 run early in the second half that helped make this one more comfortable. Villanova beat its Big 5 rival for the 11th time in the last 14 games in the series.

The rivalry that dates to 1921 and features schools separated by 6.7 miles has been a lopsided one. Villanova leads the series 44-24.

The Wildcats shook off a sluggish first half and a poor shooting night to win their first game since losing the championship game of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

Carl Jones led the Hawks (3-4) with 19 points.
