With the 2019 season over and the Villanova Wildcats holding Big East regular season and tournament titles, it’s time to update the record books. The Wildcats said goodbye to two of the greats this season, but their names and numbers will live on in the All-Time Stats. This week we’ll be going through the five major stat categories and updating them with the accomplishments from the past year.

Villanova’s senior leaders unsurprisingly finished as the team’s leading scorers for the 2019 season. Phil Booth (668) and Eric Paschall (595) each posted career highs en route to becoming the 66th and 67th members of the Wildcats’ 1,000 point club. In fact the entire senior class finished with more than 1,400 career points each.

Joe Cremo finished his collegiate career with 1,469 points between Albany and Villanova. While he had a disappointing senior year with only 145 points for the Wildcats, his career totals are still very impressive.

Paschall finished his Villanova career with 1,257 points, placing him in the Top 50 All-Time for Nova despite only playing there for three seasons. He also ties Darrun Hilliard for the 38th best career scoring average at 11.4 PPG. If you were to add in his freshman season at Fordham, Paschall would have finished with 1,667 points and placed in the Top 15 at Nova All-Time.

Booth finished his Villanova career with 1,507 points, placing him 31st All-Time between Darrun Hilliard and Tom Greis. Booth also averaged double digits for his career with 10.2 PPG over five seasons, one of which was a medical redshirt. He became the 32nd Villanova player to score 1,500 career points in his final game with a 15 point effort.

Looking ahead to 2020, Collin Gillespie (516) has the best chance of joining the 1,000 Point club. The next highest scoring players heading into next season are Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree (307), Saddiq Bey (296), and Jermaine Samuels (252).
