    Paschall, Booth key national champion Villanova in rout

    Villanova started to head out for the second half toward its rehabilitated court when it somehow got lost in a maze of exits and sprinted out the wrong end.

    "Everything's a first," coach Jay Wright said. "We're figuring it out."

    The Wildcats will quickly get used to the intricacies of their digs.

    They already seem quite at home, and as dominant as usual, at the new-look Pavilion.

    Eric Paschall scored 26 points, Phil Booth had 17 and No. 9 Villanova opened its national championship defense with a 100-77 win over Morgan State on Tuesday night.

    UConn opens Hurley era with 80-70 win over Morehead State

    UConn coach Dan Hurley is happy with the energy level of his Huskies, now he'd like to see them develop a killer instinct.

    Hurley had a successful coaching debut at his new school Thursday as UConn broke open a close game, then held off a pesky Morehead State team for an 80-70 win.

    Paschall, Booth help No. 23 Villanova avoid La Salle upset

    Villanova coach Jay Wright was raised on Big 5 hoops and considers himself a bit of a keeper of the city series' legacy. He's also quick to warn the Wildcats that anything can happen when Philly teams play at the Palestra.

    "It brings me back to childhood," Wright said. "Every time I step in this building, it's a special experience. Once the game comes, I just know crazy things are going to happen. I just expect it."

    Winless La Salle came primed for an upset -- but the only unpredictable part of a Villanova game against a city rival is the final score of its latest win. Eric Paschall scored 27 points, Phil Booth had 19 and No. 23 Villanova held off one more upset in an 85-78 win over La Salle on Saturday.

    Howard scores 45, Marquette beats No. 12 K-State 83-71

    Markus Howard kept attacking the bucket and getting to the foul line against one of the best defensive teams in the country to set Marquette records.

    Imagine how good he might have been if he hadn't been recovering from food poisoning.

    Howard had 45 points, a Marquette record for a regulation game, and went a school-best 19 of 21 from the free-throw line, his aggressive play setting the tone for Marquette in an 83-71 victory over No. 12 Kansas State on Saturday.

    Samuels' 3s lead No. 21 Villanova past Temple 69-59

    Jermaine Samuels hit a pair of 3s that kept Villanova close and one that gave it the lead for good.

    His stats sparkled on the box score -- just not on Temple's scouting report.

    Samuels hit three 3-pointers in the second half that kept No. 21 Villanova from its worst home losing streak in 25 years and helped knock off Temple 69-59 on Wednesday night.

    Seton Hall overcomes half-court shot to stun No. 9 Kentucky


    Keldon Johnson caught the ball near center court and heaved in a prayer of a shot at the regulation buzzer that sent Kentucky players and fans into a pulsating frenzy.

    Surely now, with all that momentum, the ninth-ranked Wildcats would finally take control in overtime and escape from New York with a hard-fought win.

    But this scrappy Seton Hall squad had a lot more left.

    Myles Cale hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 9.5 seconds remaining and the Pirates overcame Johnson's half-court fling that tied the score, stunning Kentucky 84-83 on Saturday in a Madison Square Garden thriller.

    Marquette beats No. 12 Wisconsin 74-69 in OT

    Marquette is winning games this season in ways that don't have to do with hitting 3s.

    They still have perimeter threats like Markus Howard and Sam Hauser. But a renewed focus on defense has given the Golden Eagles a lift this year.

    Howard scored 27 points, Hauser added 13 points and 14 rebounds, and Marquette held No. 12 Wisconsin to 21 percent shooting from 3-point range in a 74-69 win in overtime on Saturday.

    Paschall, No. 21 Villanova beat Saint Joseph's 70-58

    Villanova soared to the top of the college basketball world by capturing national championships in two of the last three seasons.

    The Wildcats have been kings of their own city for much longer.

    Eric Paschall had 14 points and nine rebounds, and No. 21 Villanova beat Saint Joseph's 70-58 on Saturday for its 25th straight Big 5 victory.

    Howard gives No. 20 Marquette boost in win over North Dakota

    The rust from a 10-day layoff showed at times Tuesday night for No. 20 Marquette, especially during a sloppy stretch of nine turnovers in the opening nine minutes.

    Markus Howard restored order in a hurry at the arc.

    Howard scored 26 points, including 19 over the final 10:22 of the first half to help stabilize the Golden Eagles after a disjointed start in a 92-66 win over North Dakota.

    Howard scores 26, No. 18 Marquette cruises past Southern

    Markus Howard is shooting so well right now from the 3-point line that his Marquette teammates can't help but enjoy the show.

    Howard is hitting 3s in transition. He's making 1-on-1 moves to free himself for open looks. He's hitting 3s off curls.

    The high-scoring junior had 23 of his 26 points in the first half, and the 18th-ranked Golden Eagles overpowered Southern for an 84-41 win on Friday night.

    Ponds scores 26 as St. John's routs No. 16 Marquette 89-69

    The best player in the building was Shamorie Ponds -- by far.

    Ponds scored 20 of his 26 points in the first half, dominating a matchup between two of the nation's top guards, and St. John's rebounded impressively from its first loss by routing No. 16 Marquette 89-69 on Tuesday night.
