Villanova ran out of magic tonight. Despite consistently leading in the first half, and holding a two point lead at halftime, Notre Dame's excellent offense came to play, and Villanova's brief run of awesomeness has come to an end, losing 65-60.
For Villanova, Mouphtaou Yarou had one of the best games of his career, finishing with 20 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. Darrun Hilliard added 14, and JayVaughn Pinkston had a quiet 11. On the not so good side, Daniel Ochefu and Ryan Arcidiacono each finished with five points, but they missed six and seven shots respectively.
Villanova will be back on Sunday when they play Providence at home.
