UConn Huskies Game Notes

Isaiah Whaley chipped in 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt), six rebounds and four blocks in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 59-55 loss to Creighton. Whaley revealed his beautiful three-point shot in Tuesday's loss and recorded a career-high for points and three-point makes. His defense wasn't lacking in any capacity, recording a four-game high four blocks. This career-nigh came off the back of his arguably least productive game of the season against DePaul on Saturday where he tallied two points and committed four turnovers. Rising from the ashes, the senior is a phoenix who will look to continue scorching opponents with newfound offensive production, beginning with Villanova on Saturday.

Villanova Wildcats Game Notes

Eric Dixon finished Saturday's 73-62 win over St. John's with 15 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds and one block over 17 minutes. Dixon tied his season-high of 15 points for the fifth time this season and recorded a perfect night from beyond the arc and at the stripe. The sophomore has averaged 11.4 points, seven rebounds and 1.4 assists over the last five games. Villanova will take on Marquette on Wednesday and seek to redeem themselves after a tough 57-54 loss in their last meeting on Jan. 19.
