Villanova Holds SJU to Lowest Holy War Point Total in 68 Years, Cruising 56-39 at the Pavilion

by Craig Dimitri

On Tuesday evening, February 6, 2007, at the Pavilion the Wildcats continued their distinctive dominance over the rest of the Big Five. Villanova won its second straight City Series crown, by cruising St. Joseph's, 56-39. The 39 points were the fewest the Hawks have scored against the Wildcats in 68 years! Not since - coincidentally - the 1939 season, has SJU's offense been so effectively stifled.

Or to put it another way - World War II had not yet started, the last time it happened.

The Wildcats also swept the Big Five in the 2005-06 season as well: going back to the 2004-05 season, Villanova has now won 11 consecutive City Series contests. Plus, VU has now defeated SJU three straight years. This is a streak which has delighted the Villanova faithful, and which we all hope will continue.

This post is a placeholder, a temporary recap, until a full, extended story - which such a glorious victory deserves - can be completed. Please stop back at Villanova Viewpoint, to read the entire story. Thank you.
