Their defense was also light years better. The Wildcats had 8 steals and 6 blocks, while holding the Leopards to 38% shooting from the field. Meanwhile, Lafayette was only able to muster up just 2 steals and 1 block all game, while the Wildcats shot 63% on the night.
Just as the story has been all year long, the Wildcats benefited from a balanced scoring attack. Eight different players scored for Villanova, and all eight recorded at least 7 points. This was a great warm up for the Wildcats, who will take on either NC State or Purdue on Saturday.
