State of the Sumpter

By David Scott - January 23, 2007

PROVIDENCE – The Friars appear intent on bringing the ball inside against the Wildcats, while ‘Nova is looking to be more perimeter-oriented, including a two 3-pointers by Mike Nardi, who leads all scorers with eight points. Villanova is up 19-11 with 11:09 left in the half.

Sumpter was taken out in the 14:00-area and has been stretching his left leg on the bench with a green stretchy-cord (medical term). The way he was favoring the leg on up-court runs is not a good indication that he’ll be able to provide serious minutes for Jay Wright.

. . . Villanova got out to a 16-9 lead and then extended to 19-11 on Mike Nardi’s second 3-pointer of the game.

. . . Tonight’s referees are Ed Corbett, Karl Hess and Doug Simmons.

. . . At the first TV timeout, Providence had seven team turnovers, to four for ‘Nova. Nova turned those seven turns into five points.
