Villanova Basketball: Wildcats Slide Continues With Loss To Georgetown

The Georgetown Hoyas came into Philadelphia and knocked off Villanova 69-66 in front of a big crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the Wildcats third loss in their last four games and drops them to 5-3 in the Big East. Currently ranked at #8 in the AP top 25, Villanova is sure to tumble after a disastrous week. On Wednesday, Nova was upset in blowout fashion by Providence.

Austin Freeman led the way for the Hoyas with 30 points, including 10 of his teams final 12. Three times over the course of the final 1:15, Villanova was able to cut the Georgetown lead to one, but every time it was Freeman who stretched the Hoya lead back to three.

Villanova was led by Maalik Wayns and Corey Stokes, who each had 15 a piece. Next week, Villanova will try to turns things around as they host Big East rivals Marquette and West Virginia at the Pavilion.
