Those who watched Villanova struggle against No. 6 Oklahoma in Hawaii last week remembered the statistic "4 for 32" more than the final score of the game. But Jay Wright said poor three-point shooting wasn't the worst thing about that night. Wright felt his team was deficient in taking care of the little things. The ninth-ranked Wildcats made sure the little things were handled better Sunday, when they put together a fine all-around game of shooting, passing, and defense in a 76-47 romp over La Salle at the Pavilion for their 12th straight Big Five win. The Wildcats (8-1, 2-0 Big Five)

RIGHT OR OTHERWISE, Villanova's December won't be defined by beating La Salle by 29 points Sunday at the Pavilion, one of three Big 5 matchups for the Wildcats in the month. Just as, fair or not, their March won't be measured by whether they can win the Big East Tournament again. They've now taken 12 straight City Series games. One was by less than 13. Six have been by 21 or more. They've lost two nonconference regular-season games since 2012. One by 16, the other by 23. The other was a week ago, in their previous game, to seventh-ranked Oklahoma in Honolulu on the 74th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

HONOLULU - Despite sweltering conditions inside of Pearl Harbor's Bloch Arena, Villanova had trouble heating up in its visit to Hawaii. Oklahoma had no such issues and the seventh-ranked Sooners hit 14 three-pointers on 26 attempts in a 78-55 win over the Wildcats on Monday in the first game of the Pearl Harbor Invitational doubleheader at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Oklahoma guard Isaiah Cousins went 4 for 4 from behind the arc and led five Sooners in double figures with a game-high 19 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists.

When Fox Sports reached out to Jay Wright and Villanova to see if they would be interested in playing a game at Pearl Harbor on the 74th anniversary of the Japanese attack that began the involvement of the United States in World War II, Wright was all in. "We really wanted to do it to honor the Naval men and women who are working out there and serving our country, and out of respect for them," said Wright, the Wildcats coach. "We also wanted to do it as a learning experience for our guys.

WHEN MOST of your players have been on teams that have won 60 of their last 68 games, nothing much is going to bother them, not even when Saint Joseph's, playing in its own gym and making a run from 15 down early in the second half to five, was playing about as well it can play. This Villanova group plays the game, not the score. After making a ridiculous 10 of their first 21 threes, the Wildcats made only one of their last 10. But it was that one by Ryan Arcidiacono that announced that there was going to be no upset Tuesday night at Hagan Arena.

St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli knows a good team when he sees one, and the Villanova team he saw Tuesday night at Hagan Arena had much more than what he called "a good offense and a great defense. " The eighth-ranked Wildcats pretty much had control of the Big Five opener for both teams for much of the game. And when they didn't, senior cocaptain Ryan Arcidiacono pulled them up and got them back on track, helping lift 'Nova to an 86-72 victory over the Hawks before a sellout crowd of 4,200.

VILLANOVA is rolling right along - unbeaten again, playing great defense again, crushing every team it plays again. Saint Joseph's is clearly better than last season, but are the Hawks good enough to hang with the Wildcats or possibly upset them Tuesday night at Hagan Arena? Last season's game was non-competitive, a 74-46 'Nova win. That margin was not a fluke. Two years ago, it was Villanova, 98-68. That margin was a fluke. In the second half that night at Hagan, the Wildcats shot 11-for-14 from three while the Hawks, a team that would close 20-5 on its way to an Atlantic 10 championship, were 0-for-9.

NEW YORK - If you've been paying attention, then you know more than a few ranked teams have gotten knocked off by the Monmouths and Northern Iowas of the food chain in the early going. Ask Notre Dame, or even North Carolina. Then there's No. 8 Villanova, which hasn't lost a game in November since 2012 and now can't lose one until next year. Of course, the Wildcats have seldom lost in any month before March the last two seasons. Anyway, on Black Friday at the Barclays Center - which will be the site of opening-weekend NCAA Tournament games - the Wildcats improved to 6-0 with a 69-52 win over Georgia Tech (4-2)
