In a game where Villanova couldn't buy a basket for much of the game, they were able to overcome La Salle largely from the free throw line in a 76-69 victory. For much of the game, Maalik Wayns was absolutely excruciating to watch, but when things counted, he made some key shots, and he made all ten of the free throws that he took and he wound up leading Villanova with 22 points to go along with nine rebounds and four assists (three turnovers). Dominic Cheek added 18 points and eight rebounds, and James Bell (Who?) had 15 points and five rebounds. When he was in the game, Mouphtaou Yarou was an absolute monster on the boards, grabbing 14 rebounds to go along with his ten points, but for some reason, he was on the bench in the end of the second half and during much of overtime (he was not in foul trouble).
