Villanova douses late rally with trey to upset Kansas

Cesar Tordesillas - 4E Sports Contributor

Paradise Island, Bahamas (4E Sports) - Darrun Hilliard and Dylan Ennis each scored 14 for Villanova (6-0) to lead a 63-59 upset of No. 2 Kansas Friday in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis at Imperal Arena.

Kansas (5-1) raced to an 11-2 lead as Villanova missed its first seven shots.

Then Hilliard hit a 3-pointer with 13:14 remaining to start a 27-8 run in 12 1/2-minutes for Villanova which then took a 29-19 lead.

A Josh Hart 3-pointer gave Villanova a two-digit margin at 44-34 with 14:17 left in the second half.

As Kansas attempted to close in, Villanova regained a two-digit lead courtesy of an Ennis 3-point jumper, a Daneil Ochefu layup and another Hart 3-pointer.

But Kansas outscored Villanova 11-1 late, boosted by Frank Mason's three-point play, to give the Jayhawks the lead with 33 seconds left.

Ryan Arcidiacono's 3-pointer off an assist by Hilliard with 10.1 seconds left put Villanova on top for good.

Perry Ellis scored 11, while Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid added 10 each for Kansas.

Villanova meets Iowa in the championship game while Kansas plays Texas-El Paso for third-place, both Saturday.
