The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for April 8th, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Salomé (again), spring/golf season, and the Creighton AD trolling the nBE fanbase.

Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! Another big lacrosse win over the New Jersey school moved the team to 3-0 in the BIG EAST and better yet, the attendance seems to continually rise at Villanova Stadium for these games. Jack Rice went H.A.M. with 5 goals.

At just 4-6 on the season, they aren't going to make the NCAA Tournament unless they win the conference tournament. Let's hope these conference wins give them the confidence to do just that, because they are good enough to compete with everyone in the country.

On to the links!

Brian Basili, Badass - Fact on Villanova Sports
The Kevin Ware comparison might be a little stretch, but Villanova's Brian Basili did something most of us wouldn't this weekend. He shattered his upper arm while running the steeplechase, got up, and not only finished, but won the race. There is no way I would've been running with this:
