PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Villanova women’s basketball team will bring an 11-2 record into Wednesday’s Big East match-up with Butler at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
The Wildcats are 2-1 in the conference and head coach Harry Perretta likes what he’s gotten out of his team so far.
“They play really well together,” Perretta tells KYW Newsradio. “They’re young, they make a lot of mistakes, but they play hard all the time and when you play hard all the time, you give yourself a chance to win.”
You also give yourself a chance to win when you play great defense. So far this season, Villanova is holding opponents to 36% shooting and 56.8 points a game.
While the Wildcats are young, they do have one key senior in guard Devon Kane who leads the team in scoring at 11.4 ppg. She has also dished out 60 assists (second on the team).
