Enter junior guard Darrun Hilliard and four members of the Wildcats' bench corps, who picked up the scoring slack and carried the team to a 73-56 Big East Conference win over Marquette in front of 15,026 at the Wells Fargo Center.

Villanova coach Jay Wright liked the way his team bounced back at practice one day after the barrage of three-point baskets launched against the Wildcats by Creighton from all over the Wells Fargo Center and, so it seemed, even the parking lots. "They came back with a great attitude," Wright said, referring to the Cats' first workout following the 96-68 pasting they absorbed Monday night at the hands of the Bluejays. The fourth-ranked Wildcats need to keep that great attitude and execute better at both ends of the floor when they travel to the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee to take on Marquette in a Big East game on Saturday.
