Villanova in the Big Five
Throughout the years, Villanova has played 215 games against Philadelphia Big Five teams. The Wildcats' record is 119-96 (.553) combined against Temple (33-36), Pennsylvania (29-15), St. Joseph's (34-21) and La Salle (23-24).

Few and Far Between
Under head coach Steve Lappas, Villanova owns a record of 19-2 (.904) versus non-Big East Conference foes in The Pavilion (1992-present). After losing to Florida, 85-77, on Dec. 22, 1993, the Wildcats won 14-straight non-league contests in the arena over a period of three-plus seasons before falling to New Orleans, 77-64, on Dec. 13, 1997. Villanova has not lost back-to-back games in The Pavilion since the 1990-91 season when the Wildcats were defeated by Temple 70-57 on Nov. 29, 1990, followed by defeats at the hands of La Salle 102-94 (Dec. 12, 1990) and Arizona 72-64 (Jan. 19, 1991). The 13-point defeats to New Orleans this season and Temple during the 1990-91 campaign mark the largest margin of victory for a non-league opponent of all-time in The Pavilion.

Home, Sweet, Home
The Wildcats have recorded 33-straight sellouts in their on-campus arena, The Pavilion, and boast a record of 92-35 (.724) in the building since it opened in 1986. From the 1994-95 season on, Villanova is 30-3 (.909) in The Pavilion, including an 18-2 (.900) mark in Big East Conference match-ups.

Villanova Versus the Atlantic 10
The Wildcats have played every member of the 12-school Atlantic 10, posting a record of 193-148 (.565) combined against the league throughout history. Villanova is 33-36 versus Temple, 3-4 versus Dayton, 25-25 versus Duquesne, 10-8 versus Fordham, 10-6 against George Washington, 23-24 against La Salle, 11-1 against Massachusetts, 4-2 versus Rhode Island, 21-18 against St. Bonaventure, 34-21 versus St. Joseph's, 3-0 against Virginia Tech, and 16-3 against Xavier. In the Steve Lappas era, Villanova is 5-4 against the league.

Lappas Versus Ranked Opponents
Temple is the second nationally-ranked team that the Wildcats will face this season, as Villanova played the No. 1-ranked Duke Blue Devils on Dec. 10 (L 94-66). Under head coach Steve Lappas, the Wildcats have recorded a mark of 16-16 (.500) against nationally-ranked teams, including a record of 12-9 (.571) over the past four years.

Lappas and Non-Conference Opponents
Currently in his sixth season at the helm of the Wildcat program, head coach Steve Lappas has posted a mark of 44-18 (.709) versus non-conference opponents during his tenure. In his first year on the Main Line, the Wildcats were 5-3; in 1993-94 Villanova recorded a mark of 10-3 in non-Big East games. In 1994-95, the Wildcats registered a mark of 8-3, and in 1995-96 they were 11-2 out of conference. Last season, Lappas posted a mark of 10-3 in non-league contests, while Villanova is 0-4 in 1997-98.

Gratz Well Represented
Simon Gratz High School in Philadelphia is well represented in the Villanova-Temple match-up, as both squads boast Gratz products on their rosters. Villanova freshman Marvin O'Connor is a 1997 graduate, while Temple senior Lynard Stewart finished up in 1994. Both players enjoyed great success at Simon Gratz, as O'Connor guided his squad to the 1997 Public League Championship and earned Player-of-the-Year honors in the city. Stewart helped his 1994 team to the finals of the playoffs, and also earned Player-of-the-Year acclaim in his senior season.

Career Highs for Celestand, O'Connor
Both John Celestand and Marvin O'Connor recorded career-best scoring performances versus New Orleans on Saturday night. Celestand posted 22 points on nine-of-23 shooting, surpassing his previous best of 19 points against Seton Hall this year and Georgetown during his freshman season. His nine field goals also were career-highs for the Piscataway, N.J., native. O'Connor, meanwhile, registered 13 points on five-for-eight shooting (.625), bettering his former career-high of 11 points set against Bradley this year. O'Connor's shooting performance was the best of his career from both the field and from three, as he hit three-for-six from behind the three-point arc.

Allen Comes Through
Sophomore Malik Allen put in one of the finest performances of his young career last Wednesday versus Duke. The Shawnee High School product posted game-high numbers in scoring and rebounding, registering a career-high 17 points and 16 rebounds. His 17 points came on seven-for-12 (.583) shooting from the field, personal-bests in field goals made, attempted and percentage. In addition, his 16 boards (eight offensive and eight defensive) is the most by a Wildcat since March 17, 1995, when Jason Lawson collected 17 against Old Dominion in the NCAA Tournament.

More on Malik
Malik Allen has posted double figures in rebounding for two-straight games, grabbing a career-high 16 against Duke and 10 versus New Orleans. It marks the first time in his career that he's registered back-to-back double-figure outings on the boards, and the first time since Jason Lawson did it last season against UNC-Wilmington and Seton Hall.

Wildcats on the Tube
During the Lappas tenure on the Main Line, Villanova has made 52 appearances on five national television networks (ESPN, ESPN2, CBS, ABC, and NBC). The Wildcats have recorded a mark of 30-22 (.577) in those games, including an 11-14 record on ESPN. Villanova is 7-1 on ESPN2, 9-7 on CBS, 1-0 on ABC, and 2-0 on NBC during the six years Lappas has served as Villanova head coach.

Jermaine for Three
Freshman Jermaine Medley had a breakout game versus Seton Hall on Dec. 6, 1997, registering a career-high 15 points on five-for-nine shooting from the field. The Wilmington, Del., native, converted five-of-eight from behind the three-point arc, one of the best performances of all time for a freshman at Villanova. Medley's five treys set a single-game record for made three-pointers for all Wildcat freshman, while his percentage of .625 is the third best of all-time among Villanova rookies. Kerry Kittles owns the top two three-point shooting marks, converting four-of-four against Lehigh on Dec. 28, 1992, and hitting four-of-six (.667) against Syracuse on Feb. 23, 1993.

Starting from Scratch
The Wildcats are virtually starting from scratch this season, with only one starter returning to the 1997-98 lineup, as Chuck Kornegay, Jason Lawson, Tim Thomas, and Alvin Williams have all departed. Combined, the quartet amassed 4,244 career points and 2,142 career rebounds during their varied tenures at Villanova. In addition, the Wildcat seniors from a year ago (Kornegay, Lawson, Williams) compiled 95 victories during their four-year stint, the most wins by a class in school history. The class of 97 surpassed the class of 85, which posted a record of 92-38 and won the NCAA title.

Holley to Redshirt
Freshman Johnny Holley, a 6-foot-6 forward from McKinney, Texas, will redshirt the 1997-98 season due to an inflammatory condition in his right knee. Holley played in only one game this season, seeing limited action against Bradley.

At Home and on the Road in the Big East
Over the last four years (1994-present), Villanova has recorded a mark of 24-4 (.857) at home in Big East Conference regular-season contests. In Big East games in The Pavilion during that time, the Wildcats are 18-2 (.900). During the Steve Lappas era at Villanova, the Wildcats are 30-16 (.652) at home in league play, including a stellar 23-11 (.676) in The Pavilion.

The Villanova Wildcats have recorded a mark of 25-21 (.543) on the road in Big East Conference match-ups under Lappas, including a stellar record of 23-14 (.622) over the last four years, and a 1-0 mark this season after a 73-69 win at Georgetown.

Experimenting with the Lineup Villanova head coach Steve Lappas has utilized three different starting lineups this season. The constants have been Malik Allen, Rafal Bigus, and John Celestand, while Jermaine Medley has been inserted at the point guard position and Howard Brown replaced Zeffy Penn versus Georgetown. Following are each of Villanova's lineups this season, and the result:

Lineup                                                      Record
(F) Allen, (F) Penn, (C) Bigus, (G) Lynch, (G) Celestand    0-1
(F) Allen, (F) Penn, (C) Bigus, (G) Celestand, (G) Medley   0-1
(F) Allen, (F) Brown, (C) Bigus, (G) Celestand, (G) Medley  2-2

75 is the Magic Number
Prior to the 1997-98 campaign, over the past five seasons under head coach Steve Lappas, the Wildcats are 72-12 (.857) in games where they have scored 75 points or better. In 1996-97, the Wildcats were 15-3 when hitting a score of 75. Last year, Villanova was 16-1 when producing 75+ points. During the 1994-95 season, they tallied a 19-1 record in such games, while they were 13-4 in 1993-94 and 8-3 in 1992-93. With five games only gone in the 1997-98 season, the Wildcats have yet to reach 75. However, they surpassed 70 twice and won both games.

1997-98 Big East Predictions
Syracuse and Connecticut are the choices of the Big East Conference head coaches to win the 1997-98 division titles. Syracuse is picked to win the Big East 7 Division, receiving 10 first-place votes and 81 points. Connecticut garnered nine first-place votes and 69 points to earn the Big East 6 champion, narrowly edging St. John's with 63 points and four first-place votes. Following is the results of the tally:

Rookie at the Point
Wildcat freshman Jermaine Medley made his first career start against Bradley, becoming the first true freshman to run the point for Villanova since the 1985-86 season when Kenny Wilson ran the show. Wilson went on to become a four-year starter for head coach Rollie Massimino, setting the Wildcat career assist mark with 627 from 1985-89. That year, Villanova started an all-freshman backcourt with Wilson at point guard and Doug West at the two guard position. Both players started each of their four years at Villanova.

Villanova and the NBA
Last season, three Villanova players were taken in the NBA Draft's two rounds, the highest number from any school in the nation. Tim Thomas was selected with the No. 7 pick by the New Jersey Nets, and was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, while Jason Lawson was chosen with the No. 46 selection by the Denver Nuggets. He, too, was traded later in the evening to the Orlando Magic. Alvin Williams went to the Portland Trail Blazers with the No. 48 pick.

In addition, over the last two years, Villanova has had four players selected in the Draft, with Kerry Kittles chosen by New Jersey with the No. 8 pick. Those four players selected in two years rates as the nation's second-highest number (Kentucky with six is first).

Played a career-high 31 minutes against the Pirates and New Orleans ... Hit first three of his career against Georgetown ...
