Maryland-Eastern Shore vs. Villanova: Halftime Notes

No. 12 Villanova is making life miserable for Maryland-Eastern Shore. They're up by 31 at halftime. Brian Nestel has some notes and highlights.

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports
  • Villanova has come out on fire. They sped out to a 13-2 lead early on and have not looked back
  • Maryland Eastern Shore has a player with the name Michael Myers, but it's Villanova's triangle, high pressure defense that is giving the Hawks nightmares. The Wildcats have forced 13 turnovers already.
  • Dylan Ennis leads all scorers at the half with 8 points. He's 3 of 5 from the field, including 2 of 4 from 3 points land.
  • UMES' Devin Martin leads both teams on the glass, as he has five rebounds to go along with his team-leading 7 points. Nova is outrebounding UMES as a team however, with 18 blocks to the Hawks 11.
  • Villanova's bench is having a strong night. Josh Hart and Kris Jenkins each have 6 points after coming off the pine.
  • The Wildcats are shooting much better than they did in their season opener. They're shooting 17-31 (54 percent) from the field.
  • The three-point shot is still not going for Villanova. They're only 4-14 from beyond the arc.
  • Marlyand-Eastern Shore's jerseys read "UMES" across the front, and every time I see them I think of UMASS. It's annoying. Finish them off, Nova.
