The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for February 27, 2014

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring senior leaders, basketball recruits, and a big rugby win over Rutgers!

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! Ho, hum, another beatdown at the Pavilon. MUST BE NICE, CURRENT STUDENTS! This is how it felt in 2009, but I do feel for the current junior and seniors. It wasn't always like this. And let's agree on this right here. We'll have bad shooting nights, but anytime you win by 20ish at home and Darryl Reynolds gets a dunk, it's a good night and there's no room to complain.

And now, the "news."
