    ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Ryan Arcidiacono scored 23 points and Villanova put together an impressive shooting display to pull away for a 94-71 victory at DePaul on Tuesday night.

    Darrun Hilliard had 17 points and James Bell finished with 16 for the Wildcats (14-9, 5-5 Big East), who bounced back from a pair of disappointing losses to Notre Dame and Providence. Villanova made 22 of 32 shots in the second half and shot 60 percent from the field for the game.

    Arcidiacono helped the Wildcats grab control after the teams were tied at 40 at the break. The freshman guard scored five points in an 11-3 run that opened a 51-43 lead for Villanova.

    Cleveland Melvin scored 19 points and Jamee Crockett had 16 for DePaul (10-12, 1-8), which has dropped seven straight games. The Blue Demons were coming off a pair of overtime losses against St. John's and Notre Dame.
