The people whose sole focus has been on Ryan Arcidiacono's shooting this season are missing much of what makes the junior guard so valuable to Villanova. The 6-foot-3 Neshaminy High graduate sparked the eighth-ranked Wildcats to a 90-72 victory over No. 24 St. John's Tuesday as the trigger man in a second half that saw his team score 56 points and shoot 69 percent (20 of 29) from the field. Arcidiacono dished out eight of his 10 assists in the second half and did not turn the ball over in 34 minutes of game action at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK - Villanova, which saw its program record-tying 13-0 start end in overtime Saturday at Seton Hall, hadn't lost two in a row since the final two games of the 2012-13 season (Louisville in the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament and North Carolina in an NCAA second-rounder). The eighth-ranked Wildcats had also won their last five meetings (twice in OT) against St. John's, 11 of 12 and six straight at Madison Square Garden, where late last night they faced a Red Storm team that had lost two straight to drop from No. 15 to 24th in the poll.

NEW YORK - You knew where Connecticut was looking at crunch time last March and April when the Huskies needed a basket on their way to an unlikely national championship. Shabazz Napier was always the answer. You knew where Louisville was looking at crunch time the year before when the Cardinals navigated their way to the school's third national title. Russ Smith was always the man. So where does the current group at Villanova, a team with Final Four aspirations, look when it needs a basket with the game on the line?

NEW YORK - Nobody told these teams it was only January. But then, circumstance occasionally dictates a measure of desperation, even in January basketball. Two months before the madness descends, The World's Most Famous Arena witnessed basketball that was completely Ides-worthy. Villanova won, 90-72, thanks to a clinically proficient stretch run in the final 10 minutes. It was nowhere near as lopsided as the score reflected. "We were both very hungry teams tonight," Villanova coach Jay Wright said.

OK, SO Villanova isn't unbeaten anymore after losing in overtime at Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon. Which means the Wildcats (13-1) didn't break the record for best start in program history, which has stood since 1937-38, the season before the first NCAA Tournament. Those Wildcats, by the way, finished 25-5 in their second season under Al Severance, who would coach on the Main Line for another 23 years. He'd win that many again twice, in 1949-50 and 1950-51. Neither of those teams won an NCAA game, which obviously is what these Wildcats have been built to try to do in another 2 months.

Coming off its first loss of the season, Villanova knows that St. John's will be a hungry opponent Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden after its 0-2 start in the Big East. Now the Wildcats will have Philadelphia's Rysheed Jordan to contend with. Jordan, a 6-foot-4 sophomore who starred at Vaux High School, returned to practice Monday for the Red Storm (11-3) after taking a leave of absence. A news release said Jordan went home to be with family after the death of his grandmother, Roslyn "Bootsie" Walker.
