What the Wildcats Lose
Bell's versatility on the offensive and defensive ends along with the strides he made offensively between his junior and senior year were some of the key reasons for Villanova's success in 2014. These are gone. Additionally, Chennault who was able to provide solid back court minutes in a back-up roll can't be overlooked. Tony's maturity and composure allowed Jay Wright flexibility in his lineups by playing an experienced backup giving Ryan Arcidiacono a rest or as the game situation dictated.
Buoyed by the numbers of Bell and Chennault, the trio only accounted for 21.9% of the team's available minutes. However, they accounted for 28% of the squads 3-Pointers and Steals.
