Providence 80: :97 Villanova

Villanova got 23 points from Scottie Reynolds, 19 from Dante Cunningham and 19 from Dwayne Anderson as the Wildcats beat Providence 97-80 tonight at the Pavilion.

The win moves 'Nova to 25-6 and finishes the regular season with a 13-5 conference record cementing a #4 seed and a Double Bye to the Quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament next week.

With the win, two milestones have been met; Villanova became the 27th school to reach 1,500 wins. The Wildcats also extend their winning streak at The Pavilion to 28 games.

The team shot 13-25 from behind the arc as Scottie paced the squad going 5-9 as everyone on the roster (except for Mo Sutton) saw the court for some time.
