Villanova vs. Penn halftime notes

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

  • Daniel Ochefu has been the Top 'Cat so far with six points and three rebounds through the first half. Ochefu is shooting 60.0 percent on his five field goal attempts.
  • The 'Cats are shooting poorly inside The Palestra as a whole, however. The team is knocking down just 30.0 percent of its opportunities, going 9-for-30 in the first 20 minutes. Dylan Ennis is a meager 1-for-7, while Ryan Arcidiacono and Darrun Hilliard are a combined 2-for-10.
  • The Quakers have gotten output mostly from the play of Mike Auger and Tony Hicks. The two combined for 12 points -- six points each -- and are shooting a combined 71.4 percent. Auger has yet to miss from the field, going 2-for-2.
  • As a team, Penn is outshooting Villanova, knocking down 45.0 percent of their 20 field goal attempts.
  • Penn is also leading in rebounds, 22-16, and blocks, 2-0. However, 'Nova is winning in the turnover category, committing just two in the first half, while the Quakers have made a staggering 11 turnovers.
Enjoy the second half!
