Champs again: Villanova tops Creighton to win Big East title

NEW YORK (AP) Collin Gillespie nailed consecutive 3-pointers late in the game that put No. 8 Villanova ahead for good, and the Wildcats beat Creighton 54-48 to win the Big East Tournament championship Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. Gillespie missed this tournament and the NCAAs last season with a torn ligament in his left knee. The 6-foot-3 senior then grabbed a rebound at the other end and came right back and drained another jumper over Kalkbrenner, the Big East defensive player of the year, for a 50-45 lead – sending the Wildcats on their way to yet another championship under coach Jay Wright.
