All Time Big 5 Players/Villanova

On philly.com today, former Philadelphia mayor and Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell wrote a piece on the Top 5 All Time players from each Big 5 school.

Here are his Villanova picks:

First Team

Wali Jones

Hubie White

Howard Porter

Bill Melchionni

Paul Arizin

Second Team

Alex Bradley

Chris Ford

Randy Foye

Kerry Kittles

Ed Pinckney

Three players worthy of consideration not included on this list are John Pinone, Harold Pressley and Scottie Reynolds. I was also a huge fan of Doug West . Who knows maybe JayVaughn Pinkston or Ryan Archidiacono will be in the discussion when their time is done.

For some of you younger Nova fans, google some of these older players and learn about their collegiate career and it will give you a deeper appreciation of Villanova Basketball.

For the record, the Gov. did not include any Wildcats on his Big 5 All Time Team which included:

LaSalle's Tom Gola and Ken Durrett

Temple's Guy Rodgers

St. Joseph's Clifford Anderson and Bobby McNeil

Villanova's Howard Porter made the Second All Time Team, and is considered by many as the best player to come out of Villanova. Wali Jones is on the Third Team with LaSalle's Lionel Simmons. Simmons is the greatest Big 5 Player I saw play in person.

Please feel free to post your First and Second teams in the comments section.
