Darrun Hilliard leads Villanova to #businesslike win over Marquette

 James Bell took three total shots and scored zero points, but it didn't matter. It didn't matter because Darrun Hilliard scored a career high 26 points on 7-11 shooting including 5-8 from three point range and Villanova easily dispatched of Marquette, who usually give them  an unnecessarily difficult game and ended Buzz Williams' team's already slim chances at an NCAA Tournament berth. To go along with his outpouring of points, Hilliard had four assists to only one turnover, and zero personal fouls in a game where there were many. Coming in second on the team in scoring was Josh Hart, who scored 13 points and looks as if he is catching a second wind in the last few games after going through a bit of a slump in the middle of the Big East season, and third was JayVaughn Pinkston, who wrapped up the double figure scorers with 11 points while leading the team with seven rebounds.

Villanova's next game is at Xavier on Thursday, and it is their most significant hurdle in the way of their quest for their first outright Big East regular season title since 1997.
