- I'll ask that kid.

- Howard straight away deep. [INAUDIBLE]

- The two of them together. Ha ha. They are amazing.

- Brunson. Skip pass, DiVincenzo. Drives. Spins. Jump up, and good.

- He can do that, I think, a number of times. Well you're the right guy to deal with it. And by the way, it's a Nick locker room.

[INTERPOSING VOICES]

- Well, they don't care who shoots at those two either.

- Done.

- His injury was a leg injury, wasn't it? As I recall?

- I believe so. DiVincenzo deep. And hits.

- How about that? Showing you a little bit of my game, huh?

- Inside, [INAUDIBLE]. And Bridges good, and the foul. And the foul.

- The close out, faulty. They don't really take bad shots. Spellman, he's down at Princeton. Loves it.

- Howard another three. Uh-oh.

- He had Spellman. Spells doom. The way they shoot, I wouldn't-- oh, this kid's taking a nice cut [INAUDIBLE] An unselfish-- you talked about a day of teaching the kid how to play.

- Arquette can get closer. [INAUDIBLE] pushes the plays, in transition! And he ripped it!

- Where are you? And look at Jay Wright is livid.

- Howard. Looking for that shot. Spinning inside. Flicked it up and in.

- Well, it's two versus three. That's the-- and now comes Rousey.

- Rousey, quick release off of screen and knocks it down.

- Well, it's tough to stay with them, because they're not only deceptive, but they are quick.

- It's like to may have injured himself slipping in the paint yesterday. Meanwhile, Brunson with the finger roll.

- Again. No magic about it.

- Rousey inside the house. And just taken away by Spellman. Kicks it out to [INAUDIBLE]. He's got Brunson on a fast break.

- Textbook fast break for Villanova.

- Ejected Bill Russell style.

- And kept it.

- Brought it down, Brunson. And it's good.

- Got to be careful. 10. They do a great job locking the pivot foot.

- Quick release [INAUDIBLE].

- Got to get one. Got to get one.

- Uh-oh.

- Yeah, they're tied. Little zone look now. This is dangerous. Flash and kick, or you don't get up on the shooter. Look at this. A tip jam by Pascal. Lot of bad things can happen. Good [INAUDIBLE] gets an open look.

- Brunson double team to the corner. Skips it. Pascal for three.

- How about that? And that kid, 18%, 19%, 20% from threes early in the year.

- Up to 30% now, I think.

- 31% from the three point line.

- Nice slam.

- [INAUDIBLE] will bang it down.

- There's a party going on.

- Baseline. Spellman of three.

- They-- you can't press them. They do not just wait for you to settle back in your defense.

- [INAUDIBLE] DiVincenzo shows it, kicks it, [INAUDIBLE] Wow. Clinic.

- It is. Now they're all percolating.

- [INAUDIBLE] make that Brunson. [INAUDIBLE] Wow. He's got a lot of boogey in his game. Boogey Brunson gets there, draws a foul.

- Don't let him get to that dominant hand. Twist and turn got [INAUDIBLE] on a string. A little kiss by the lead guard, and maybe the lead candidate for Player of the Year right into your living room.

- Contested by Spellman, picked out of the air by Howard, he'll take a straight away J off the--

- Oh Adam! Wow. Amen.

- Peter Kerrs. Booth. Spellman hit one from there the last time. And that's back to back to back three pointers for Amari Spellman. Marcus Howard at 23, Rousey had 22. And Villanova improves to 28 and 4 on the season, as they hand Marquette a 94--

- We have improved defensively. But I do think, towards the middle of the second half, they show a little fatigue from playing last night. Early it was in their advantage. Then I thought we pushed on later in the second half.
