Villanova's first week in Big East play was rough, but week two was even rougher.
Playing two home games against two very lightly-regarded teams in South Florida and DePaul, they were expected to get back to .500 in league play.
South Florida in particular was ripe for the picking. In their entire history in the Big East, the Bulls had won just 6-of-52 road games. Villanova had also won 51 of their last 52 games at the Pavillion.
Things didn't go according to plan on Thursday as South Florida came north and just took it to the Wildcats in every phase of the game, dropping them by a score of 74-57.
Luckily, in their last game before a showdown with Syracuse, Villanova was able to take care of business against DePaul, 87-71. It was the most points the 'Cats had scored since their opening game of the season.
It wasn't an impressive week for Villanova basketball, but here is how each player stacked up last week.
