(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.

2020 NCAA tournament bracketology: Why Big East teams could win on Selection Sunday

  2020 NCAA tournament bracketology: Why Big East teams could win on Selection Sunday The Big Ten likely will earn the most bids, but the Big East could be the big winner on Selection Sunday with several top seeds in the NCAA tournament.The Big East leads the nation in the NCAA's NET metric, outpacing the deep Big Ten this season. The league's best team, Seton Hall, checks in as a No. 3 seed and bolstered its profile — and likelihood to vault to the No. 2 line — after a narrow win over Butler on Wednesday. Creighton is also a No. 3 seed with a chance of improving to a No. 2 seed. A March 7 regular-season finale between the two teams could determine more than just conference supremacy.

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.

"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."

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.

Providence beats another Top 25 team, this time No. 12 Villanova 58-54

  Providence beats another Top 25 team, this time No. 12 Villanova 58-54 Luwane Pipkins scored 27 points to lead Providence to its fifth win over a Top 25 team this month, holding off No. 12 Villanova 58-54 on Saturday. The Friars (17-12, 10-6) boosted their NCAA Tournament resume with a win in Philly where they led for the balance of the game. Providence already knocked off Butler, Creighton, Seton Hall and Marquette during their ranked-win streak in February. The Friars won their fourth straight game overall and have put behind a disastrous start to the season -- which included losses to Long Beach State and College of Charleston - to aid their tournament chances.

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."
