Villanova Basketball All-Time Assist Leaders: 2022 Update

We update all week Villanova Basketball record books with the latest entries from the 2022 season. We will also look forward to who can join these legends on next year’s team. Check in every day for a new statistics update.


There are a number of amazing photos and memories from the 2022 Final Four race for Villanova. But one of them is unfortunately the sight of Justin Moore being helped off the field by his teammates. Villanova fans will forever wonder “what if” when it comes to losing Moore on the brink of the Final Four. But hopefully that’s just a small part of what they’ll remember from Justin Moore’s season.

Moore was known as one of the best players on this team, but he really proved that he could do anything Nova asked him to do. Moore had career highs for rebounds, assists, steals, blocks and points in a season. He became the do it all point guard when Collin Gillespie was not on the floor. He was a vocal leader and a team captain. He did everything you would expect from a Villanova legend.

In just three seasons, Moore has already entered the list of all-time assistant managers, where he is ranked No. 45 with 213 assists in his career in just three seasons. And that is with two years of eligibility left. He is joined on the list by Jermaine Samuels, who had 55 assists in his final season to place him as number 42 on the list with 221 assists in his career.

And then there’s Collin Gillespie. He was already on the list to start the season, and the super-senior set his second 100+ assist season to break into the Top 10 and tie Scottie Reynolds to 8th overall with 482 career assists.

Looking forward to 2023, no players on the current list are within 100 assists from reaching their 200th assist. That said, Brandon Slater is closest with 99 assists in his career.
