The Villanova Wildcats headed to the Verizon Center on Saturday afternoon with one thing on their mind: Revenge.
The Wildcats improved their streak to 21 straight conference victories, and virtually assured themselves a top 5 AP ranking come Monday, knocking off the Hoyas 55-50.
The Wildcats were led by another strong showing from Josh Hart. The junior guard picked up his fourth double-double of the season (third of conference play), leading the 'Cats with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera led the Hoyas with 15 points, but also committed seven turnovers, as Villanova's defense gave the senior guard fits.
Villanova improves to 16-2, 6-0 with the victory. They'll head to Newark on Wednesday night to face the Seton Hall Pirates.
Georgetown falls to 11-7, 4-2. They'll head to Cincinnati on Tuesday night to face the Xavier Musketeers.
