Jay Wright, Corey Fisher Trying to Stop Villanova from Sinking

villanova

Is it time to question Jay Wright’s coaching abilities? Can you motivate his team to start defending better on the perimeter? In all of college basketball, Nova is a team that has seriously suffered a recent rough patch. Big East play has not been very kind to them.

After starting the year 16-1, they’ve gone 5-8, and now find themselves 21-9, 9-8 in the Big East. They’re right in the middle of the crowded pack of BE teams that should make the NCAA Tournament, but have still squandered their opportunity for a favorable seed.

In their utter destruction of Villanova, Notre Dame made a school-record 20 three-pointers (20-32). The previous high was 19 against South Dakota on Dec. 2, 2008. The 20 treys also matched a BIG EAST record. West Virginia made 20 against Marquette on Jan. 14, 2006. Notre Dame’s 11 made three-pointers in the first half tied the most-ever for an Irish team in one half of a BIG EAST game.

99 in 99: #12 Villanova Wildcats

scottie reynolds villanova

It is going to be strange watching the Villanova Wildcats this season and not seeing Peter Christian’s boy Scottie Reynolds on the floor…  Kind of like how it is when I tune into CSI and do not see Gil Grissom.  It is different and I am not sure I like it, but I know have to move on because he is never coming back.  For the record, I have the exact opposite feeling about Taylor King not being on the ‘Nova roster.  That makes me smile.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball teams and top 27 mid-majors.  ‘Nova comes in at #12.  Click here if you missed teams #13-#99.
