From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!
We have four Villanova alum on this Friday Night ‘Cats NBA watch. Kyle Lowry and his Raptors are in Arizona to take on Mikal Bridges and the Phoenix Suns. Ryan Arcidiacono and the young Chicago Bulls were locked in a close game with Indiana. Then in the Lone Star State, the Dallas Mavericks hosted the New York Knicks. Here’s how they did.
K-Low is doing a little of everything for Toronto, who is trailing Phoenix—52-48—at halftime. Lowry has six points, four rebounds, six assists, and a pair of steals, through 15 minutes on the floor.

The Phoenix Suns lead the visiting Toronto Raptors at half, 52-48. So far, Bridges has seen six minutes of playing time. He missed both of his shot takes in that opening half, and grabbed one rebound.

It was a fantastic night for Arcidiacono’s assist-to-turnover ratio. He came off the bench for 22 minutes of game time. He finished with three points off of a 1-of-3 shooting performance. He truly shined in distributing the ball, racking up six assists without coughing up a single turnover. He also had two rebounds. Unfortunately for him and the Bulls, they lost another close game, falling 107-105 to the Pacers.
