Besides Pinkston, forwards James Bell (14 points), 6-11 Maurice Sutton (eight rebounds, six blocked shots), and 6-11 Daniel Ochefu (11 points, 5 for 6 from the floor, seven rebounds) were major contributors.
"We're always working together in practice, and we're getting a feel for working together," said Pinkston, who equaled his season high. "Just the little things . . . like coming to meet the pass. We're getting better every day."
Bell carried the momentum from his late heroics against St. Joseph's into Sunday.
Bell, a junior who buried a late three-pointer vs. St. Joe's to give Villanova the lead for good, scored eight first-half points as the Wildcats built a 32-28 halftime edge against Delaware. He finished 4 for 6 from three-point range.
"He's becoming our rock," Wright said.
Villanova outscored the Blue Hens, 30-12, from beyond the arc, and the Wildcats had a 43-27 rebounding advantage and a 38-16 edge in bench scoring.
With Villanova (7-4) holding a 46-40 lead early in the second half, Bell hit a three-pointer to trigger an 8-0 run that put the Wildcats comfortably ahead, 54-40. The hosts coasted the rest of the way.
Devon Saddler led Delaware (3-8) with 19 points, but a majority came during garbage time.
In a first half that had five lead changes, Villanova outscored the Blue Hens, 13-3, in points that followed turnovers.
"That's what we wanted to do - always be on the attack," Pinkston said.
Villanova has never lost to Delaware in the series' history, winning all 11 matchups.
