No. 8 Villanova has lost just three times this season: at No. 4 Syracuse in December and twice to No. 9 Creighton during Big East play. Not a particularly flashy team, the Wildcats are tough, unselfish and they’ve got plenty of skill as well. Those attributes were on display Sunday afternoon as Villanova beat Marquette…

Having won nine of their last ten games entering Saturday’s contest at No. 9 Villanova, St. John’s has been one of the hotter bubble teams in the country. A win over the Wildcats would further cement St. John’s status as a team charging towards an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. And given their 0-5…

Styles make fights. And sometimes they make beatings. That’s about the best way to explain what happened to No. 6 Villanova on Sunday, as their attempts to defend Doug McDermott and No. 18 Creighton once again fell short of the mark. Creighton shot 64.2% from the field and 9-for-15 from beyond the arc in their…

No. 18 Creighton shot fewer threes in the rematch than they made in the opener, but that didn’t matter. The Bluejays still managed to put up triple-digits on No. 6 Villanova in Omaha, beating the Wildcats 101-80 behind 39 points from National Player of the Year favorite Doug McDermott. That means that in two games…

At this point, we know what we’re getting out of Villanova.
