PHILADELPHIA -- Scottie Reynolds wasn't interested in talking about his 27 points. He is a mature senior star now and the play he wanted to talk about after Villanova's seventh straight win was an offensive rebound.The 6-foot-2 guard was able to grab the rebound of a missed 3-pointer by teammate Reggie Redding as the shot clock expired, before falling to the court and calling a timeout.
