Jay Wright:

“I don’t want it to always be, Scottie will get us going, but I’m glad we have that. That’s something I always have in the back of my mind.”

Providence Head Coach Keno Davis on Scottie Reynolds:

“We can’t slow him down, but I don’t know that there’s any team out there that can.”

Scottie Reynolds attempted to explain why he gets rolling in the second half:

“You try to give energy, you try to be aggressive and when things aren’t going your way, you try and keep a good attitude.”

Player Analysis

Scottie Reynolds – 28 minutes, 22 points, 1 assist, 6-14 shooting, 3-6 from behind the arc – another solid game from Scottie – once again doing most of his scoring in the 2nd half of the game, which allowed Villanova to build a more comfortable lead against the Friars, who with their speed and scrappy play were able to remain close for the first 30 minutes of the game.

Corey Fisher – 33 minutes, 22 points, 6 assists, 10-15 shooting, 0-1 from behind the arc

Antonio Pena – 28 minutes, 15 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 0 turnovers, 2 fouls, 5-9 shooting – a very solid performance from Pena.

Reggie Redding – 27 minutes, 5 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 2-4 shooting, 1-1 from behind the arc – he hasn’t been a standout in the box score, but he is doing what he has to for this team to continue its success.

Corey Stokes – 25 minutes, 10 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 turnovers, 3-11 shooting, 1-8 from behind the arc – a solid game, especially rebounding and on defense – his shooting percentages are a bit scary and unsettling however. 8 3-point attempts, and he only made one of them. However, the box score does not tell all – he played aggressive and smart in the game, and although he didn’t shoot the ball well, he still racked up 10 points in only 25 minutes.

Maalik Wayns – 14 minutes, 4 points, 1 assist, 3 turnovers, 5 fouls

Mouphtaou Yarou – 5 minutes, zero points, 2 turnovers, 1 fould

Dominic Cheek – 11 minutes, 6 points, 2 rebounds, 1 turnover, 2-3 shooting, 1-2 from behind the arc

Taylor King – 13 minutes, 3 points, 2 rebounds, 3 steals, 4 fouls

Isaiah Armwood – 15 minutes, 5 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 fouls

Maurice Sutton – 1 minute
