Villanova senior guard Corey Fisher was benched for the start of Wednesday night's Big Five game against Penn at the Palestra for what a spokesman said was a disagreement at practice.

Fisher, one of three co-captains on the Wildcats, entered the game as Nova's top scorer with a 15.6-point average. He also was dishing out 4.2 assists per game.

Sophomore Dominic Cheek started in Fisher's place.

Fisher entered the game for the first time after 2 minutes, 15 seconds of play.
