The Villanova Wildcats were scalding hot in the first half of their Final Four showdown against the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday night at the Alamodome.

In fact, that may be an understatement.

En route to scoring 47 points and building a 15-point edge at the break, the Wildcats tied the Final Four record for threes in a single game with 13 first-half threes on 26 attempts, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

All five starters drilled at least two treys, while Donte DiVincenzo and Collin Gillespie added one each off the bench.

Just another day at the office for the nation's most efficient offense, per KenPom.com.
