Nassau, Bahamas (SportsNetwork.com) - James Bell had 20 points as Villanova topped No. 23 Iowa 88-83 in overtime to win the Battle 4 Atlantis championship on Saturday night.

Josh Hart netted 16 points, JayVaughn Pinkston scored 14 and Ryan Arcidiacono added 13 for the Wildcats (7-0), who defeated No. 2 Kansas on Friday night to get to the title game.

Roy Devyn Marble tallied 24 points, five rebounds and five assists for Iowa (7-1), which beat UTEP in the semis on Friday.
