08:15 AM ET 11.21 | While the idea that Villanova would struggle early this season was well-known, a Tuesday night loss to Columbia wasn't at all expected. However, the Lions found Tuesday night that an extra pass can get you an open three-point look against the Wildcats' defense, and that you can pack in a zone defense and dare Villanova's outside shooters to make a shot from beyond the arc. Columbia sank 11 three-point baskets while the Wildcats managed to hit just 3 of 17 attempts from deep, and that was a big part of the Lions' stunning 75-57 upset. ... [Brian Barbour] contributed 14 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, and three steals, doing a great job of setting the table for Alex Rosenberg (21 points), Steve Frankoski (15), and Grant Mullins (14).
