Eagerly anticipating a Q&A with Villanova Viewpoint, so I'll post that tomorrow and put the normal preview here.
Pomeroy Ranking- 15th
Record- 18-1 (7-0)
Best Win- Maryland (11th)
Worst Loss- Temple (30th)
Pomeroy Prediction- Nova 97-80
#1 Scottie Reynolds- 18.7 PPG, 3.4 APG, 42.4% 3PA- The star of the team since his freshman year, Reynolds has greatly improved his shooting this year. Field goal percentage is up almost 9% from last year.
#10 Corey Fisher- 13.1 PPG, 4.2 APG, 35.0% 3PA- Fisher has turned into more of the point guard with Reynolds shooting the ball so effectively this season. Has a positive A/T ratio in only one of his past four games.
#0 Antonio Pena- 10.7 PPG, 7.5 RPG- Has become a non-factor in the Big East after a string of very good nonconference performances. Double digits scoring in just one of his last eight games. His last double double has on December 2nd.
Great offense (3rd), above average D (69th)
No real weakness with the ball. They shoot a high percentage, get the the foul line, and rebound really well.
Biggest issue is fouling. Pena has fouled out in three of his last four games and had four fouls in the other. That's 19 in 4 games.
