Villanova may be the No. 1 ranked team in the country, but they're not satisfied.

Still feeling the pain from their second loss of the season, Nova wants to step up their game.

"We don't want to be complacent about where we are. We don't want to be complacent about being ranked No. 1 or being first in the Big East or being the defending National Champions," Villanova captain Josh Hart said.

Hart, the heart and soul of the team, believes Nova has the heart of a champion.

"We have all the pieces. We have the talent. Do I think we can? Yeah. Does that mean we will? No," Hart said.

Hart is up for National Player of the Year. He'll find out in two months if he wins the Oscar Robertson Award, but that's not his focus. Right now, it's winning another championship and hanging another banner in the rafters.

"I would love to win Player of the Year, it would be a great honor to win that. But I got to focus on making sure this team is where we're supposed to be at the end of the year. That might mean I average ten points for the rest of the year," Hart said.

Villanova head coach Jay Wright is following the captain's lead.

"If Josh Hart is working on getting better every day than I'd better," Wright said.

Villanova is in good hands when the ball is in his hands.

The Wildcats have never lost a game when Hart scores 20 or more points.
