  Gillespie leads No. 15 Villanova past No. 18 Marquette VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) — On a night Villanova retired the jersey of one of its greatest point guards, its current point guard came through in the clutch. Collin Gillespie had 14 points and hit a pivotal 3-pointer with 2:03 remaining, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl had 17 points and 11 rebounds and No. 15 Villanova held on for a 72-71 victory over No. 18 Marquette on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak. Gillespie added five rebounds and four assists, but his shot taken just a few feet from where former Wildcats standout Ryan Arcidiacono was sitting was his biggest play of the night.“I just try to be a leader and lead by example,” Gillespie said.

  Bey, Gillespie lead No. 12 Villanova past DePaul 91-71 CHICAGO (AP) — Saddiq Bey and Collin Gillespie each made five of Villanova's 18 3-pointers, and the 12th-ranked Wildcats used their long-range shooting to beat DePaul 91-71 on Wednesday night. Villanova went 18 for 26 from deep in its 20th straight victory against DePaul. The Wildcats (20-6, 9-4 Big East) have made at least nine 3s in their last five games, including 17 during Sunday's 76-56 victory at Temple. Bey finished with 22 points andIn between, Villanova put on quite a show.

St . John ’ s responded every time Villanova made a run, every time the crowd got loud, every time the pressure was amped up. They built a nine-point lead, and never lost it in front of 10,900 at Wells Fargo Center. The Johnnies ( 12 -13, 1-11), a 16-point underdog, had last defeated the No. 1 team in the

Villanova finished with a 41-23 rebound advantage but the Wildcats had an uncharacteristic 20 turnovers that the Red Storm turned into 20 points. Villanova : Phil Booth (left knee) has played three games this season and none since Nov. 17, and there is no time table for his return.

The Wildcats (22-6, 11-4 Big East) had trouble shaking St. John's until late on a night the program honored former star Kyle Lowry. Lowry, a five-time All-Star guard for the NBA champion Toronto Raptors, played two seasons for the Wildcats and was one of the early pieces that helped build coach Jay Wright's program into a national power.

Lowry was flanked by former teammates and called the jersey recognition honor a "once in a lifetime" experience that he was able to share with his wife and two young sons. His sons, Karter and Kameron, played with the microphones at a halftime press conference.

BOX SCORE: NO. 12 VILLANOVA 71, ST. JOHN'S 60

Lowry played from 2004-2006 when the Wildcats made their first two NCAA Tournament trips of Wright's young tenure.

St . John ' s has lost 16 in a row, the longest streak in Division I. For a half, Villanova (22-3, 12 -1 Big East) hardly looked like the nation' s top team. After a pair of offensive rebounds at the opposite end, Arcidiacono hit a 3 to increase the lead to 60 -47. "They might have played as well as any game I've

Harry Perretta wins 699th game as Villanova beats St . John ' s . Author: SI Staff. Publish date: Feb 12 , 2016. NEW YORK (AP) Alex Louin scored 18 points and Caroline Coyer added 17 to lift Villanova to a 71 -59 win over St . John ' s on Friday night giving coach Harry Perretta his 699th career victory.

"From the time I got here, he was kind of on that proverbial hot seat," Lowry said. "Now, he's never going anywhere and he's one of the best coaches in the history of college basketball."

Wright has since won two national titles at Villanova and was named the AP Coach of the Decade. Wright has said how Lowry skipped classes and was disruptive at practice, so much so that it got to the point where the feisty guard might not have made it to a second season. Lowry, now extremely close with Wright, laughed when he recalled his rocky relationship with his coach.

"My freshman year, I was such an immature kid and I didn't know what to expect, I didn't know what I wanted or what I could do or what my abilities were off the court," Lowry said. "I didn't know what I was, I didn't know who I was. Me and Coach never talked about basketball. We always talked about these things off the court. That's why me and Jay, to this day, have the relationship that we have. It wasn't nothing about basketball. He didn't worry about me on the court. He worried about me as a man."

PHILADELPHIA — St . John ’ s took down another of the nation’ s elite and stunned No. 1 Villanova , 79-75, on Wednesday night for its second win over a top-five team this week — and first over the top-ranked team in 33 years.

Wright's biggest worry Wednesday was a St. John's team that came in 12½-point underdogs and kept the deficit within single digits for most of the second half. Greg Williams Jr. buried a 3 for the Red Storm (14-14, 3-12) with 4:37 left that pulled them within six.

Moore, though, steadied the Wildcats with his fifth 3 of the game, a driving layup and a pull-up jumper in succession that stretched the lead to 13 and sealed another win for the perennial Big East power.

PRETTY CLOSE

Villanova hit seven 3s to St. John's one in the first half but only led 36-34 at the break.

BIG PICTURE

St. John's is just counting down the days until the season ends. Barring an improbable run to a championship in the Big East Tournament, the Red Storm are looking for the future. They played their fourth straight game without Mustapha Heron (13.8 points) because of a sprained right ankle.

Villanova won its fifth straight game and has a big rematch against No. 13 Seton Hall ahead on March 4. Seton Hall won the first meeting and both teams could meet again in a conference tournament title game.

NOVA-ON-NOVA RUMBLE

Lowry had a staredown with former Wildcat Donte DiVincenzo, the most outstanding player of Villanova's 2018 title team, after a hard foul in Toronto's game against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

"Donte better cut that stuff out," Lowry said with a laugh. "That's my guy, though. I fouled him hard and he didn't like it. It's all in the competitive nature. I love Donte and what he's doing. He's having a great year. Hopefully, we see them in the playoffs."
