• Scottie Reynolds and Dante Cunningham each scored 18 points as Villanova rallied from an eight-point halftime deficit. Reynolds scored eight of his points in the final 2 minutes and 5 seconds.
• Villanova is 19-1 this season against unranked opponents and has won 12 of its last 13 vs. unranked Big East opponents.
• The struggles continued for DePaul as it has now lost 15 straight overall, all in Big East play, 11 straight Big East home games and 16 straight vs. ranked opponents.
