Nova Wins the Holy War

Thursday, December 11, 2008 ·

Villanova has won the 2008 Holy War after knocking off Saint Joseph's 59-56 at the Pavilion. Down by 1 late, Scottie Reynolds drove the lane and was fouled. He nailed both free throws to give Nova a 57-56 lead with a little over 4 seconds left. Dante Cunnigham stole the following inbound pass and made two free throws to lock up the win.

From what I was able to hear, Nova allowed far too many layups in the first half, which allowed the Hawks to have a 35-26 lead at the break. Nova's defense stiffened in the second half and they outscored the Hawks 34-21 in the second half.

After losing to Texas on Tuesday night, Villanova needed this win over their rivalry to get their concentration back and ready for the Big East.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
