Villanova still perfect, tops Penn by 23
December 4, 2013
VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) - Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points and James Bell had 14 to lead No. 14 Villanova to a 77-54 win over Penn on Wednesday night.
JayVaughn Pinkston added 13 points and the Wildcats (8-0) overcame a 7:29 scoreless stretch to open the second half, winning their first game as a ranked team in almost two years.
The Wildcats catapulted from unranked to 14th this week, the first time they cracked the Top 25 since they were No. 19 in the Feb. 28, 2011, poll. Within a span of about 24 hours, Villanova defeated No. 2 Kansas and No. 23 Iowa to win the Battle 4 Atlantis last weekend in the Bahamas.
Miles Jackson-Cartwright led Penn (2-5) with 17 points and Darien Nelson-Henry had 12.
The Wildcats beat the Quakers for the 11th straight time.
