UConn runs over No. 3 Villanova 48 hours after 'embarrassing' loss to Cincinnati
PHILADELPHIA -- A "must win" for Connecticut turned into just another upset of a Big East top-10 team.
Katz: NCAA Bid Up To UConn
Can UConn win out at Rutgers, West Virginia, Louisville, at Notre Dame and then at South Florida in its final five? Sure, but the Huskies could also lose every one of those games, too, writes Andy Katz. Blog
• UConn notched its first true road win of the season and snapped a six-game road conference losing streak.
• Kemba Walker had a career-high 29 points for the Huskies and career-highs in 3-point FGM (3) and FTM (14).
• UConn outscored Villanova 35-16 at the free-throw line.
• The Wildcats saw a 12-game home winning streak and an 11-game home winning streak vs. unranked opponents end.
