Villanova Steals 76-69 Overtime Win Over La Salle
Aided by a 41-11 advantage on the foul line, Villanova overcame a 5 point deficit with 1:22 left in regulation to defeat the Explorers 76-69 in overtime. A steal and the resulting layup by freshman Darrun Hilliard that tied the game with just under a minute left pushed the momentum in Villanova's way and they pulled away in overtime.
Villanova was led by Maalik Wayns' 22 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists while La Salle was led by their sophomore backcourt of Tyreek Duren (24 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals) and Sam Mills (19 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists)
