NBA Wildcat Watch: Bubble Edition (Aug. 5)

All eyes on Kyle Lowry.

NCAA Basketball: St. John at Villanova Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

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!

Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors) is the only Villanova alum playing in Wednesday’s NBA lineup. The Raptors will take on the Orlando Magic, at 8 p.m. ET.

Check back later to see how he did.

Kyle Lowry

Lowry and the Raptors continue to win in the bubble, posting their third-straight victory. They beat the Magic, 109-99.

It wasn’t a big night for Lowry scoring-wise, but the NBA veteran made his presence felt in nearly every facet of the game. He came close to a triple-double, finishing with eight points, nine boards, and 10 assists. He also had one block, a steal, and drew a couple of charges.
