VUHoops, I Bleed Blue and White, 'Nova News, Villanovan Sports Blog - Penn Recaps, in Today's Various Viewpoints

To the Villanova Wildcats faithful-

Here's a rundown of what the other fine Villanova blogs had to say, about last evening's glorious victory over Penn, at the Pavilion, 103-65:

Mike at vuhoops.com -
The Wildcats shot 58.7% from the field including 11-21 from behind the arc to extend their Pavilion winning streak to 30 games.
The new-look I Bleed Blue and White was particularly prolific on the victory over Penn: 

As Chris writes, in the main recap, "When Everything Is Working" :

...Any lineup that Wright put on the floor last night was gold. Hell, even Maurice Sutton and Isaiah Armwood, 2 guys who didn’t get much burn in the opener, were in the game while it was still, well, a game. That’s how much confidence Jay Wright appears to have in his 10 man rotation. Only Armwood (who went scoreless) did not score in the 1st half. Even Russell Wooten notched his 1st career points in garbage time as his lay-up put the Cats over the century mark....

For his part, Brian compiled these post-Penn notes - Villanova-Penn Brief Postgame Notes... 

Nova News had "Nova Soaks Penn 103-65" - here's a quote:

Taylor King - Plays like a madman... I love it. He grabbed three rebounds in less than a minute after entering the game, then drained a three. He also made the Dwayne Anderson signature dive from behind steal. 14 points and 7 rebounds in the game... you can can see he's already turning into a crowd favorite.

Corey Stokes - "Only" made two 3-pointers for 14 points.

Antonio Pena - Got a legit double-double this time (12 points, 10 rebounds). He also had 2 blocks and and just 2 personal fouls. He's looked great, but the competition has been lacking. The true test will come in Puerto Rico.
Finally, Quick Recap: Villanova 103 Penn 65 appeared on The Villanovan Sports Blog - here's a quote:
Unlike the game against FDU this past Friday, Villanova took care of business early and blew away the Penn Quakers 103-65.  Up by 30 points at the half, Villanova once again let its depth shine as the team’s bench scored 46 points, led by the team’s leading scorer Maalik Wayns, who finished with 16.
