The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for June 17, 2014

Daily 'Nova links, today featuring Day 2 of the Villanova Team Camp, staying ahead of NCAA changes, and reactions to the United States' massive win in the World Cup.

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! What a win for the United States last night - almost unfathomable considering how badly Ghana outplayed us in the second half - and after they equalized so late I had almost convinced myself that taking a point from that game would have been okay, especially with the injuries/suspensions that Portugal suffered in a massive defeat.

But with our own injury concerns to Jozy Altidore and Matt Besler, walking out of the stadium with all three points was absolutely vital. Enter John Anthony Brooks!
