- Kris Jenkins leads the Wildcats with 19 points. His career high is 23, so that's something to watch in the second half.
- Daniel Ochefu, Josh Hart, and Jenkins all have two fouls for the Wildcats. They'll have to be more conservative in the second half.
- Villanova, the best free throw shooting team in the country went 6-6 from the line in the first half.
- JP Macura leads the Musketeers with 13 points.
- After his injury last time these two teams played, Edmond Sumner has four points, three rebounds, and three assists tonight.
