Villanova coach Jay Wright on Marquette's perimeter defense and why it was such a tough shooting day for his team. The Wildcats made their tough shots but missed their open ones in a 1-point loss.

Markus Howard has 19 of Marquette's 28 points so far, and has taken 15 of the team's 28 shots. Neither Hauser brother (Sam or Joey) has scored, and frustration is beginning to mount as Joey just took a 3-pointer from Racine and missed. Howard's teammates are contributing in other ways -- Ed Morrow provided a nice boost off the bench -- but eventually others need to score.

Villanova hit a 3-pointer 13 seconds into the game. Since then, the Wildcats have missed seven straight attempts from long range (Phil Booth is 0-for-3). Nova is having much better success trying to drive and likely will need to continue attacking as its perimeter shooting simply isn't there yet.
