Villanova dominates St. John's in record-setting win

NEW YORK (AP) Donte DiVincenzo had 25 points, Kris Jenkins added 24 and No. 2 Villanova cruised past St. John's 108-67 on Thursday in the Big East Tournament quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden.

The Wildcats, who had six players score in double figures, set team tournament records for points scored and margin of victory.

DiVincenzo, a redshirt freshman who finished 7 of 8 from the field, including 5 of 6 on 3s, surpassed his previous career high of 20 points, also set against St. John's, which suffered its worst loss ever in the tournament.

The Wildcats (29-3) will face the winner of the Marquette-Seton Hall game in the semifinals on Friday.

The Wildcats took command with an almost perfect first half and led 52-26 at halftime.

Villanova shot 51.5 percent (17 of 33) in the first half, including 9 of 20 from 3-point range.
