There are a lot of ways to look at Villanova's 84-81 win over La Salle at Tom Gola Arena. You could call it a Wildcats comeback, or you could call it an Explorers collapse. You could look at the fact that Tyreek Duren, Ruben Guillandeaux and Earl Pettis shot a combined 10-for-35, or you could look... Read more
