Larry Hennessy '53 Passes

Villanova has lost one if its greats. Legend Larry Hennessy (Class of 1953) passed away earlier this week at the age of 79.

Hennessy scored 1,737 points in 3 years for the Wildcats and his #14 jersey hangs in the Pavilion. He also grabbed 438 rebounds in his career at 'Nova. In 1952, he was named a First-Team sophomore All-American.

In 1953, he scored 45 points against Boston College, the third highest single-game output in Villanova history.

After Villanova, Hennessy played for the Philadelphia Warriors and was a part of their 1956 National Championship team.
