The Wildcats are on serious upset alert.

Villanova came into the day needing what appeared to be an easy win over La Salle to put itself in position to be ranked No. 1 in the polls on Monday.

The win isn't going to be easy - and it might not even come.

At halftime, the undefeated, No. 4-ranked Wildcats are trailing.

Villanova is shooting just 40 percent from the field and is 1 for 9 from the 3-point line.

The game is being played on FS1.
