An injury depleted Villanova Wildcats team toppled the favored Syracuse Orange in Radnor, Pa. Tuesday night, securing its first Big East victory of the season.

With key players missing due to a rash of injuries, Villanova was able to dig deep and jump out to an early lead.  Villanova (12-11, 1-9) maintained the lead with disciplined play and impressive shooting from beyond the arc, putting four players in double figures to beat Syracuse, 83-69, at the Pavilion.
