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)

In its first two Big East Conference games, Villanova captured a pair of wins fueled by excellent shooting, running an offense that could have been described as poetry in motion. But Jay Wright knows that on most nights, Big East games are 40 minutes of bumping and banging and diving to the floor and collisions without one second of poetry. Seton Hall provided that type of test Wednesday night at the Pavilion, but the 11th-ranked Wildcats were ready for the challenge. Daniel Ochefu scored 20 points, grabbed 18 rebounds, and set the tone on the defensive end, lifting the Wildcats to a 72-63 victory over the Pirates in a game played before more than a dozen NBA scouts.

BEING FROM Washington, it's hardly shocking that Josh Hart was a Georgetown kind of guy. When it came to Villanova, well . . . "I thought Scottie Reynolds was there for like seven years," he said with a smile. The Hoyas were recruiting him before backing off. So he ended up on the Main Line in large part because "I know the pedigree of their guards. " So why is the 6-5 junior - who might be the most versatile and athletic basketball talent in the city - now the starting power forward for the 11th-ranked Wildcats, who are 13-2 and have won 75 of 85 games since he arrived?
