PHILADELPHIA -- Villanova coach Jay Wright believed his Wildcats had a chance to be good this season, thanks to the players chemistry. Petr Cech Jersey . He just didnt expect them to be this good. Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points to lead No. 6 Villanova to a dominating 77-59 victory over Georgetown on Saturday, preserving the Wildcats hopes of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. JayVaughn Pinkston added 13 points, and James Bell and Ryan Arcidiacono had 11 apiece for the Wildcats (28-3, 16-2), who won their sixth straight game while tying the 2005-06 team for second-most wins in program history. Villanovas 16 Big East wins are the most in school history. "I dont try to predict our record but if someone forced me to, I never wouldve predicted 28-3," Wright said. Wright said the teams togetherness, which has been evident since preseason workouts in the summer, is a key to the Wildcats success. "Most of your teams that are good get along, but this is a really unique group," Wright said. "I think they are all really similar, and they do look out for each other. Its a pleasure to coach guys who love to play. They love to play together. It was really fun to be a part of that." Said Hilliard, "We just like each other, man. We dont have nothing against each other. Were really like brothers. We like talking with each other and enjoy being around each other, even off the court." The Wildcats team-first mentality showed against the Hoyas, as five players scored in double-figures. Bell entered Saturday averaging a team-best 15 points per game, which is unusually low for a team so highly regarded. "At the offensive end, theyre a very, very unselfish team," Hoyas coach John Thompson III said. "They drive, kick it to the person and that person can make a shot. They have several players on their team who would be the point person, the star on other teams. They have different players who can step up. I think their unselfishness is a key." The 18-point win marked the largest margin of victory for Villanova in a Big East game between the teams. Markel Starks scored 20 points for the Hoyas (17-13, 8-10), who are in jeopardy of failing to make the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009. DVauntes Smith-Rivera added 14 points and Aaron Bowen had 13 for Georgetown. Georgetown needs a run in the Big East tournament to secure a fifth straight NCAA bid. The Hoyas, who are the No. 7 seed, open the tournament Wednesday night. "Well put all of our energy into getting ready for that first game," Thompson III said. "Well have to play better than we did today, significantly better." Villanova, meantime, is in position for a No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament with a good run in the conference tournament. The Wildcats, who were helped by Kansas loss on Saturday, already have secured the Big East regular-season title and the top seed in the conference tournament. Villanova opens play in the Big East tournament Thursday. The Wildcats likely will field many questions about NCAA tournament seeding in New York, site of the Big East tournament, but Wright said the talk wont affect his players. "I dont think theres that much of a difference with a one and a two (seed)," Wright said. "Being considered up there is great, but its no concern for us. The Big East tournament will be fun." Bell added: "Our focus is always on the next game, the next day and just getting better period. The next day is just the next challenge. The next day is another chance to get better and thats what we have to deal with." Villanova, which led 42-29 at halftime, upped its advantage to 20 points when Arcidiacono made two 3-pointers on consecutive Villanova possessions to give the Wildcats a 55-35 lead with 13:02 remaining. The Hoyas never got it under double-digits the rest of the way. The Wildcats took control with a strong first half. Bells four-point play with 49.8 seconds left in the half gave Villanova its largest lead of the period, 42-27. Bell had 11 points in the half for the Wildcats, who shot 52 per cent from the field and 57 per cent from the arc in the opening 20 minutes. Bowen had nine points before the break to pace Georgetown, which battled foul trouble in the first half. Starks, who entered averaging a team-best 17 points per game, picked up his third foul with 6:40 to play before intermission. Jabril Trawick also had three fouls before the break. There were some hard fouls in this one that was reminiscent of the old Big East when these teams developed a fierce rivalry that has remained with the incarnation of the new basketball-only Big East this season. Smith-Rivera suffered an apparent head injury 43 seconds into the second half and walked groggily to the bench before returning minutes later. Villanovas Dylan Ennis limped off after going down hard with just over seven minutes to play. Neither team allowed the other easy layups in a game that featured 46 fouls. NOTES: It was the 73rd meeting between the teams, and the Hoyas now lead the series 42-31. ... The Wildcats improved to 39-33 all-time at the Wells Fargo Center, Villanovas off-campus home venue. ... Wildcats recruits Phil Booth and Mikal Bridges, who both signed National Letters of Intent with the school for next season, were in attendance. ... Villanovas previous largest Big East margin against the Hoyas was a 75-60 win on Feb. 5, 2004. The Wildcats largest-ever margin was 28 points -- 73-45 -- on Feb. 11, 1950. Jamal Blackman Chelsea Jersey . Chelsea took until the second half to trouble the leagues bottom team, but Schuerrle then ripped through the defence with ease at Craven Cottage to keep Jose Mourinhos side on track for the title. Eden Hazard Jersey . -- Oakland Athletics starting pitchers Jarrod Parker and A. http://www.chelseasoccerjerseysonline.com/customized/ . Meeks has agreed to a $19.5 million, three-year deal with Detroit, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday night. The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because free agents cant sign contracts until the leagues moratorium ends July 10, also said Cartier Martin had agreed to a one-year contract with the rebuilding franchise.Winnipeg Jets 3 Anaheim Ducks 2 (Jets 22-23-5, 11-13-1 home) – The loss was the first regulation home loss of the year for the Ducks. Meanwhile, the Jets extended their winning streak to four and remain perfect under Paul Maurice. Its the Jets second four-game winning streak of the season, the other coming in mid-November. The Ducks are now 20-1-2 on home ice this season, and had a 10-game home winning streak going into the game. With a power play goal 3:59 into the first period as the Ducks jumped out to a 10-0 shot advantage. But 1:20 later, Blake Wheeler with his team leading 18th tied it on the Jets first shot on goal, with assists to Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane. Kane was back in the lineup after missing the last four with a hand injury. It was Kanes 300th NHL game. Wheeler extended his point streak to four games (2-4-6), Scheifele extended his to four (2-3-5). The goal came off the rush with Wheeler beating Jonas Hiller high glove with a quick wrist shot. At 18:36 the Jets took the lead as Andrew Ladd (11th) banged home the rebound off a Jacob Trouba shot, with Bryan Little also picking up an assist to extend his point streak to five. Shots in the first ended up 15-7 in favour of the Ducks. The only goal of the second period was a shorthanded goal by Kane, his second short-handed goal of the year and his 15th goal overall. Kane scored off the rush on a play that started in the Jets end, beating and chasing Hiller with another shot high glove side. Little picked up another assist and is 2-6-8 over the past five games. It was his 10th multi point game of the year, Kanes sixth.? Shots in the second were 11-6 Only one goal in the third with Nick Bonino scoring at 10:18 to make it a one goal game, but that is the way it ended. Shots in thee third were 16-8 Anaheim. Oscar Chelsea Jersey. At the end of the night Ondrej Pavelec had stopped 40 of 42 and the Jets had their win. In total the Ducks directed 94 shots at Pavelec who was terrific in picking up his fourth straight win in his sixth straight start. The Jets blocked 36 shots while the Ducks missed the net with another 16. A total of 15 Jets blocked at least one shot, with Toby Enstrom leading the way with five, Mark Stuart and Trouba with four each. Trouba is now 3-1-4 in the last three games. Zach Bogosian led in ice time at 25:56, as he and Enstrom did a great job shutting down Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf.? Wheeler is now 3-5-8 in the last seven games, Scheifele 3-5-8 in the last seven and 7-12-19 in the last 21. Pavelec ties his season high four game win streak. The Jets penalty kill was key in the win going four for four.? “They are a very, very good team,” stated Coach Paul Maurice post-game. “They expose teams weaknesses, and not just our team. I was impressed with our willingness, our character, a big PK in the third, holding the lead late, and our goalie was a big part of all that.” The Jets were a very emotional group as the game ended, knowing they had just beaten the NHLs number one team. “This is a confidence builder,” Maurice said. “The bench was quiet early, we didnt start very good. The bench got loud when they made it 3-2, but again the penalty kill in the third was huge. Blocking shots is a must against that team.” The Jets now meet the number two team in the Pacific Division, the San Jose Sharks, a team that like the Ducks is very good at home. That game goes Thursday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The Jets are in a stretch of seven on 10 on the road. NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
