WASHINGTON - At halftime of a game in which both Villanova and Georgetown forgot to pack finesse into their duffel bags, Josh Hart was told by his coaches that he had grabbed only one rebound in the opening 20 minutes. With 6-foot-11 senior center Daniel Ochefu, the Wildcats' top rebounder, playing hurt and sick, Hart knew he had to stay on the glass Saturday if the sixth-ranked Cats wanted to get out of the Verizon Center with their Big East winning streak intact. The 6-5 Hart delivered with 11 rebounds in the second half and teamed with Ryan Arcidiacono to fend off a comeback by the Hoyas.

WASHINGTON - When Georgetown defeats Villanova at the Verizon Center - and that has happened four times in their last five meetings there - it's usually because the Hoyas come out of the locker room with fire in their eyes while the Wildcats look to ease into the game. It happened again last year when the Hoyas raced out to a 22-point halftime lead and took a 78-58 victory. That was on Jan. 19, and the sixth-ranked Wildcats haven't tasted defeat in a Big East Conference game since then.

The little stadium just off Lancaster Avenue - the first sight of Villanova's campus if you're coming out from the city - that's Andy Talley's stadium. For more than three decades, his office has been under the grandstand, nearest Lancaster. "The bomb shelter," Talley calls it. Call it Talley Stadium. That would be a big-time move for Villanova, and Andy Talley always fought to be big-time. That would also be the fitting move after Wednesday's announcement that the Wildcats football coach is retiring after the 2016 season, to be replaced by assistant head coach Mark Ferrante, which gets Talley's full endorsement.

WHEN ANDY TALLEY was hired to be the Villanova football coach in May 1984, there "really was nothing" in place other than a field to play on. The program had been dormant for four years before the university decided to bring it back at the level now known as FCS. And Talley, who grew up in Bryn Mawr, was handed the keys after running things for five seasons at Division III St. Lawrence (Canton, N.Y.). "They told me they'd put a trailer up to work out of," Talley recalled. "And I went, 'I don't think so.' " So he "confiscated" two carpenters to build an office at the far end of the stadium that he refers to as "the bomb shelter" and is still using.

DANIEL OCHEFU was ESPNU's 54th-rated prospect in the recruiting class of 2012. So when the 6-11 center from Wester Chester's Westtown School chose Villanova, some wondered why. Didn't he know that Jay Wright would play five guards if he could, that it wasn't the place for a big man to fully/properly develop? "I never really talked about that," Ochefu recalled. "Other schools mentioned that stuff. Sometimes they had valid points, sometimes they did not. I understood that there's going to be great guards no matter where you go. I want to play with great guards.

Four Big East teams were ranked in the Associated Press top 25 when the conference schedule began two weeks ago, but the coach of one of those teams, Xavier's Chris Mack, sounded like a voice of reason in singling out Villanova. "They're the best team in our conference until proven otherwise," Mack said, referring to Nova's back-to-back regular-season titles and the 2015 tournament championship. Through the first four games of the Big East season, the sixth-ranked Wildcats (14-2)

INDIANAPOLIS - Villanova guard Ryan Arcidiacono came into the game Sunday against Butler shooting a career-best 50 percent from the floor in his senior season. But in the first half against the Bulldogs, he was 1 for 9 from the field, including 0 for 5 from three-point range. After a defensive struggle in the first 20 minutes of the Big East matchup, in which neither team shot better than 35 percent, Arcidiacono turned things around and sparked a 17-4 run to open the second half that helped lift the 11th-ranked Wildcats (14-2, 4-0)
