Darrun Hilliard and JayVaughn Pinkston each scored 15 points, and Daniel Ochefu grabbed 20 rebounds Sunday to lead Villanova to an 82-45 victory over Nyack in an exhibition game at the Wells Fargo Center. Ochefu added 11 points and four blocked shots as the Wildcats finished their exhibition slate 2-0 prior to their season opener Friday night against Lehigh at PPL Center in Allentown. However, Villanova coach Jay Wright wasn't very pleased with the 18 turnovers committed by his team.

Villanova's first two possessions resulted in a combined total of 7 yards lost on six plays. But the Wildcats overcame that slow start, and quarterback John Robertson completed 16 of 21 passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns as Villanova defeated Towson, 42-14, at Villanova Stadium on Saturday night.   Villanova head coach Andy Talley said Robertson, needed to command the game from start to finish. "I told John before the game that he needed to take absolute control of [it]

DESPITE LOSING at Richmond by a point, Villanova still is in position to make some serious postseason noise. If they can win their last three, starting tomorrow at home against Towson (4-5, 2-3), the seventh-ranked Wildcats (7-1, 4-1 CAA) likely will get an opening bye in the FCS tournament and at least one home game. Or maybe even two. Which should be more than enough incentive. "I like our chances," said coach Andy Talley, who might be unbeaten if his kickers had made a short field goal at the end of regulation in the opener at Syracuse and a PAT in the rain in Virginia.

MAGICAL. It's a word used often in sports, overused really, because better and more apt descriptions suck the emotion from the moment, and the mythology of it as well. Highly improbable just doesn't cut it. So we lean on magic, mysticism. We do what Jay Wright did again last night, throw out "incredible" or "amazing" in about every other sentence as he described Villanova's 1985 NCAA championship run, and its charismatic architect who returned here, 9 days from his 80th birthday, with his latest and probably last team, Northwood University.

Villanova coach Jay Wright was the perfect host to his former boss, Rollie Massimino, and members of the Wildcats' 1985 national championship team Tuesday night at the Pavilion until the ball went up for the opening tip against Massimino's Northwood team. Once that happened, Wright intently studied his 12th-ranked Wildcats and yelled at his players and corrected them just as if it had been a regular-season Big East game. One of the questions Wright considered through the preseason was who would be his fifth starter.

Andy Talley made sure there were no qualifiers. When the Villanova football coach talked about redshirt junior quarterback John Robertson, Talley unleashed unabashed praise. "He is the best quarterback in I-AA [now the Football Championship Subdivision] and certainly one of the top five in the country at any level," Talley said matter-of-factly. At any level? "He's one of the best quarterbacks in America right now and would start for almost anybody in the country," Talley said.

Walk the hallways of the Pavilion where Villanova plays basketball, or the Davis Center where the team trains and practices, and it is always 1985. Ronald Reagan is the president. Something called WrestleMania is holding its first event. Nelson Mandela is in a South African prison. Pete Rose is closing in on Ty Cobb's major-league hit record. It is 1985 and the Villanova Wildcats are the national champions of college basketball. The photos aren't grainy, but many of them are black-and-white.

RICHMOND, Va. - Michael Rocco ran for the go-ahead touchdown Saturday, and Richmond, ranked 14th in the FCS coaches poll, cashed in on a missed point-after attempt to beat No. 3 Villanova, 10-9.
