The Villanova starting five has been a work in progress this season but they seem to have found a rhythm in Big East play.
Arcidiacono has plenty of potential but his talent is still raw at the moment.
As a freshman, he is gaining valuable experience that he will use in his next three years at Villanova that he will hopefully use to bring the Wildcats back into the national discussion.
Hilliard struggled for most of the season but he has come alive in recent weeks and is now averaging more than 10 points per game.
The sophomore guard was one of the main reasons why the Wildcats upset Syracuse on Jan. 26 as he scored a season-high 25 points in that game.
Bell has not done much on the offensive end during conference play but he is relied on more for his defensive prowess.
Ochefu has been gaining more playing time by the game but for the freshman forward to become more effective he will have to contribute more than his current four points per game.
Yarou has brought plenty of experience to the young Wildcats team and he has played like a senior leader in the last four Big East games.
In those four games, Yarou has averaged just more than 13 points per game against stingy defenses like the ones from Syracuse and Louisville.
