Hart leads No. 3 Villanova over UCF, 67-57
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Josh Hart scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half as No. 3 Villanova stared down UCF and 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall to win the Charleston Classic with a 67-57 victory Sunday night.
The Wildcats opened 5-0 for a fourth straight season, using their experience to pass around the middle and their tenacity to chase down loose balls that Fall couldn't corral.
The result was the fourth in-season tournament title for Villanova in as many seasons, the defending national champions running their November record the past four years to 24-0.
