Sumpter Enters with 16:27 to go in Half

By David Scott - January 23, 2007

PROVIDENCE – Sloppy play ruled through the first four minutes of the game with five total turnovers between the two teams in the initial two minutes of action.

With 15:55 left in the half, Villanova leads 5-4.

. . . At 16:27, Curtis Sumpter was inserted into the line-up with a heavy wrap on his left leg from the thigh down to the knee. He seems to favoring the leg a bit when he's goes up and down court. He scored his first bucket of the game with 14:54 left.

. . . Sumpter’s replacement, Shane Clark registered two quick fouls, in 51 seconds, necessitating the insertion of freshman Reggie Redding by Jay Wright.

. ... Sharaud Curry picked up two early fouls as well, and was replaced in the 17:00 mark by freshman Dwain Williams. Williams had gotten some valuable minutes when Curry was suspended earlier this season.

. . . Mike Nardi is hearing the derisive chants of “Nar-Di, Nar-Di” from the PC students.

. . . Villanova started in a man-to-man defense, while PC has gone with a 2-3 zone.

. . . PC missed its first three free throws.
