Coming into this game UCONN had lost 5 of their last 6, including an embarrassing ass-kicking at the hands of Cincinatti on Saturday. None of that mattered tonight, however, as they held the lead throughout the second half against No.3 Villanova and came out victorious, 84-75. Nova got into foul trouble early in the second and couldn't get their offense going at all. Scottie Reynolds had a solid game, as usual, but UCONN's Kemba Walker - 29 points, 8 rebounds - was just too much for the Wildcats in this one. Reynolds finished the game with 18 points and 4 steals. Taylor King, on the other hand, was 0-6 for 0 points.
Villanova is now 11-2 in the Big East, 22-3 overall. Next up: Saturday @ Pitt.
