PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Villanova Wildcats will look to put together back-to-back victories on Saturday afternoon as they welcome South Florida to the Pavilion.
Villanova sits at 14-9 (5-5 in the Big East) after that 94-71 win over DePaul on Tuesday night. In that one the Wildcats went bonkers in the second half on offense, scoring 54 points on 69% shooting – including 6 of 7 from three-point land.
“It was an interesting second half,” Villanova head coach Jay Wright tells KYW Newsradio. “We felt good about our offense in the first half, our defense was a little shaky, but DePaul was hitting threes. We got some easy baskets off our defense early (in the second half) and then we just started feeling it. Sometimes it happens, your guys get in that rhythm hitting threes and everybody’s hitting them. But it started by creating easy baskets with our defense.”
