VILLANOVA, Pa. – Josh Hart scored 12 points and Phil Booth and Darrun Hilliard each had 11 to lead No. 10 Villanova to a 74-46 win over Saint Joseph's on Saturday.
The Wildcats (8-0) scored the first eight points, led by 15 only 6 minutes into the game and treated the rest of it like a glorified exhibition against one of their biggest rivals.
Villanova thumped Saint Joseph's 98-68 last year and has remained the class of Philadelphia's six Division I teams.
Without a true No. 1 scorer, the Wildcats continue to play solid team ball under coach Jay Wright. Up 25 in the second half, no Wildcat had hit double-digit scoring.
Ryan Arcidiacono scored the first basket of the second half and became the ninth Wildcat to score.
DeAndre Bembry led the Hawks (4-4) with 13 points.
