Dominant showing from Villanova over a St. John's team that had an emotional win about 16 hours ago. Wildcats win by 41. Kris Jenkins and Donte DiVincenzo were alternating hot stretches, and six guys finished in double-figures. Villanova hitting on all cylinders as it prepares for a run at a repeat title. One thing to note: Mikal Bridges played just one minute due to a stomach virus. Led to some interesting lineup combinations from Jay Wright.

Strong first half from Villanova. Wildcats weren't called for a foul the entire half. Kris Jenkins started hot, Donte DiVincenzo finished hot. Jay Wright has his team focused.

Josh Hart contributing without filling it up against St. John's. Has a couple buckets, but is finding guys out of the post, passing out of double teams, making the extra pass.
