Villanova Slides by Robert Morris

Villanova needed overtime to get by Robert Morris, 73-70.

Even though Senior Scottie Reynolds only made 2 of his first 15 shots, his clutch free throws at the end of the game kept 'Nova alive and put the Wildcats into Overtime.

As we noted on our Twitter feed before tipoff, Reynolds did not start the game as a "teaching point" by Coach Wright. The Senior ended the game with 20 points.

Robert Morris was led by Karon Abraham who shot 5-11 from long distance and led the Colonials with 23 points.

The Wildcats only out-rebounded Robert Morris by 2 but forced 21 turnovers on the NEC champions.

Freshman big man Mouphtaou Yarou contributed 17 points and 8 rebounds. Taylor King added 10 points from the bench for 'Nova in 15 minutes.

As a team, the Main Line squad only shot 27% from 3-Point Land and 35% from the field as a whole.

Villanova will play St. Mary's College on Saturday in Providence. [Tickets]
