Senior forward Mouphtaou Yarou with just two rebounds, will become the 10th player to score more than 1,000 points and grab at least 800 rebounds in their Wildcats' career, joining a list that includes Ed Pinckney, Harold Pressley and Dante Cunningham. Ryan Arcidiacono (12.2 points) has averaged 17.8 points per game in his last five games. Villanova, who did not make the NCAA Tournament last year, would have a much better chance if they beat Georgetown at home. Georgetown ends with a meeting at home against rival Syracuse on Saturday.
