St. John's 57
Villanova 76
(box score)

St. John's: 10-7 (1-4 BE)
#20 Villanova: 14-3 (2-2 BE)

Next game: at #3 Connecticut, 21 Jan. at the XL Center.

Villanova played two solid halves to put away an outmatched St. John's team. Four starting Wildcats -- Dwayne Anderson, Dante Cunningham, Antonio Pena, and Corey Fisher -- scored double digits, and Scottie Reynolds finished with 9.

I was not able to catch this game, so please take a look at the post-game reports from VBTN, IBBW, VUhoops, Nova News, and Johnny Jungle.

With the win, Villanova posted a 1-0 record on the week, enough to jump up three spots in the AP poll to #20. The move was almost certainly more due to attrition than to the victory over St. John's.

Congratulations to thevoice, who most closely predicted the game's final score in our never-ending reader contest.

Next up for the Wildcats is a major test against the #3 UConn Huskies in Hartford on Wednesday.
