The game was put away starting with 6 minutes remaining; Yarou's dunk off of a Corey Fisher dish started a 12-2 run that put the Wildcats up by 16 w/ 3 and a half minutes to play.

It was a combination of Villanova's outside shooting- they shot 8-14 from behind the arc- and the play down low that propelled the 'Cats. The Wildcats out-rebounded the Cardinals 36 to 18.
