[ad_1]

Villanova will hit the road for the first time this season on Sunday afternoon, when the Wildcats travel to Quinnipiac for a non-conference contest. Tip-off in Hamden, Conn., is set for 3 p.m. The game can be seen live on ESPN+.
 
Sunday’s game between Villanova and Quinnipiac will be just the third all-time meeting between the two schools. The last time the Wildcats and Bobcats met was during the first round of the 2014 WNIT when Villanova earned a 74-66 win.
 
Villanova is coming off a 70-37 home win over the visiting Rider Broncs on Wednesday, Nov. 25. Maddy Siegrist led the way in the win with a double-double of 28 points and 10 rebounds. She was 13-of-19 from the field and 2-of-5 from three-point range. Freshman Lior Garzon was the second Wildcat to reach double figures with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting (3-of-4 from long distance). Brianna Herlihy added eight points and eight rebounds, while Raven James dished out a game-high six assists.
 
Quinnipiac earned a 71-65 victory against the visiting Providence College Friars in  its season opener. Rose Caverly led the Bobcats in the win with 20 points, while Mikala Morris had 17 points.   
 
The first Villanova double-double of the 2021-21 season was credited to Siegrist who had 28 points and 10 rebounds against Rider. Siegrist has now tallied a double-double in 12 of her 32 collegiate games.
 
Villanova was very efficient on the offensive end of the floor in Wednesday’s win over Rider. The Cats finished the game shooting 52.6 percent from the field (30-of-57) and 40.0 percent from three-point range (8-of-20). The Wildcats also played outstanding team basketball in the win, as they were credited with 24 assists on 30 made field goals.
 
The Wildcats got a solid contribution from the bench in the season opening win.  Of the 70 points scored, the Wildcat bench scored 20 of the 70 points. The bench play was highlighted by Garzon who had 11 points in her collegiate debut.

Utah Basketball Announces Tip-Off Times For Four Games In February

[ad_1]

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah basketball and the Pac-12 Conference announced tip-off times and broadcast information for four games in February.

Utah basketball is scheduled to face Colorado in Boulder on Saturday, January 30 before taking talented teams in the month of February.

After the Colorado game, the Utes will stay on the road and head to Tempe to face Arizona State on Tuesday, February 2 at 2 p.m. MST on the Pac-12 Networks. That game is made up from the originally scheduled contest on December 22 but was postponed due to COVID-19 related issues with the Runnin’ Utes program.

Utah will then return to the Jon M. Huntsman Center on Thursday, February 4 to face Arizona at 5 p.m. MST on FS1. Then it’s a rematch with ASU, this time in Salt Lake City on Sunday, February 7 at 12 p.m. MST on the Pac-12 Networks.

The Runnin’ Utes will go back out on the road to Northern California and will battle Cal on Thursday, February 11 at 4 p.m. MST on the Pac-12 Networks. They will close out the road trip in Santa Cruz against Stanford on Saturday, February 13 at 8 p.m. MST on the Pac-12 Networks.

It will be the first time that the Utes will play both Arizona schools this season. They have already played the Northern California schools two weeks ago at the Huntsman Center. Utah beat Stanford, 79-65 on January 14 and lost to Cal, 72-63 on Saturday, January 16.

After that stretch, Utah will have five games remaining in the regular season. They will travel to Oregon State on Thursday, February 18 and Oregon on Saturday, February 20. Then they will host the Beavers on February 22 in their makeup game. Oregon State couldn’t come to SLC on January 9 due to COVID-19 issues within their program. That game will tip-off at 5 p.m. MST on ESPN2.

Then they will end their regular season at home against UCLA on Thursday, February 25 and USC on Saturday, February 27. Out of those remaining five games, only the Oregon State game at home has a tip-off time.

The Runnin’ Utes are coming off of a disappointing loss to Washington on Sunday, 83-79 after the Huskies ended the game on a 7-0 run.

Aces basketball looks to rebound from loss, travels to face Bradley

[ad_1]

”I think our guys will approach it well,” Lickliter said. “I think they’ll compete hard and prepare well, but you have to execute on game day. And you know, the challenge – Bradley presents a lot of challenges, so we’re still growing. We still don’t have a lot of experience, but we’re gaining every day.”
