Villanova Vs. Notre Dame Score: Ben Hansbrough, Irish Running Wild In First Half

If the Villanova Wildcats are going to get their Big East season right at some point, it’s probably not going to be tonight. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are up 47-27 at halftime. That’s 47 with a 4, which is an awful lot of points for one half of Big East basketball.

Ben Hansbrough and Tim Abromaitis have combined for 30 of those points. Hansbrough has added six assists and three steals, and Abromaitis has grabbed four rebounds. Maalik Wayns leads all Nova scorers — and there aren’t very many! — with eight points.

Notre Dame is shooting over 53 percent on the night, which, again, is a heck of a lot for the Big East. They’re winning on the boards and avoiding turnovers, and if you’re not watching this game, just be glad I’m doing it for you.
