Cardell Hayes said he was crying when Racquel Smith testified the other day. "I didn't want to kill Will Smith. I didn't want to kill nobody. ... The way she was just saying I shot her and stood over her husband, like she did the other day, I was over there crying because I would never hurt her. She didn't do me anything." Hayes said Will Smith was the only person who made him feel like he was about to be killed or severely injured. "I knew I was gonna be shot. I probably would've died. I knew for a fact I was gonna get shot." Hayes began crying when talking about his son being without his father. Tears could be heard throughout the courtroom.

Then Hayes added, "Everything happened so fast, when I see him spin, I hear a pop. And when he fired, I fired my weapon." Hayes said his gun fired several times rapidly, and he didn't expect it to go off that many times and he tried to stop it from shooting that many times. Hayes said he dropped his weapon after that. Hayes said, "I definitely didn't want to kill him. ... I don't want to kill anybody."

That last bucket from Matt Farrell emblematic of Villanova's entire first half. Caught flat footed. Trail at half for the first time this year, 41-36. Josh Hart scored 10 of Wildcats last 12 but can't keep them in it alone. Notre Dame really smart, fluid offense.
