PROVIDENCE, R.I. - You never want to have a losing streak. Especially at this stage of the journey. Particularly when you haven't had one all season. On Sunday, Villanova got drilled by Creighton for the second time in 4 weeks. After dropping three spots in the Associated Press poll to No. 9, the Wildcats flew back halfway across the country to play their third straight road game, at a place where they've had their issues, against a team trying to make a statement for the NCAA Selection Committee.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Villanova coach Jay Wright freely admits that he's still trying to get over the 21-point loss that Creighton handed his team Sunday. Fortunately for Wright, his players stayed in the moment Tuesday night through regulation and two overtimes against Providence. Playing their third road game in seven days, the ninth-ranked Wildcats persevered through a plethora of missed opportunities and finally prevailed when Ryan Arcidiacono's conventional three-point play with 3.6 seconds remaining gave them an 82-79 Big East victory over the Friars before a near-sellout crowd at the Dunkin Donuts Center.

THE SIXERS have been done in by the Killer Threes of late, surrendering 21 of them to the Nets in Brooklyn on Monday night. And the same number to the Portland Trail Blazers in their previous game. But last night, the Sixers pulled off an inside job on the Nets, en route to a scintillating 121-120 overtime win, snapping a seven-game losing streak. The Sixers outscored the Nets, 66-30, in the paint and dominated the boards, outrebounding Brooklyn, 49-36. And it was fitting that Evan Turner score the game-winner on a drive to the basket that bounced three times on the rim before dropping through as time expired.

The Sixers (8-19) avenged an embarrassing 130-94 setback to the Nets (9-17) on Monday night at the Barclays Center. But more important, the victory snapped their seven-game losing streak.
