Rutgers (13-17, 5-12) had a brutal first half, only scoring 19 points before turning on the jets in a losing effort. Four starters were in double-digits including Dane Miller who had 16 points and nine rebounds.
Both Myles Mack and Eli Carter shot woefully from the field, shooting 4 of 15 and 4 of 14 respectively.
The win breaks a four game losing streak for Villanova. Maybe the Wildcats can finish their Big East schedule on a high note over the weekend.
Villanova will host Senior night on Saturday afternoon against Cincinnati.
The Villanova Wildcats continued their losing ways on Saturday with a 21 point loss to the eighth-ranked Georgetown Hoyas. The Wildcats have now lost seven of their last eight games, which includes losing four straight. At 11-17 overall and 4-12 in conference play the Wildcats are one of the worst teams in the Big East – only Providence and DePaul are worse.
Villanova shot an embarrassing 28 percent from the floor and out-rebounded by 13. Guard, Dominic Cheek was the game's leading scorer with 19 points on 12 shots. He also added four steals and three rebounds. No one else on the Wildcats scored in double figures and Maalik Wayns scored only three points on 1-10 shooting.
The Wildcats have two regular season games remaining – March 1 at Rutgers and March 3, when the host the Cincinnati Bearcats.
