...Yikes...well, I am 99% sure I know why this happened, as I'm sure a lot of Villanova fans do...but I'm not going to say why until there is an official release from the school...

...This is such a shame, TK looked so good early on in the year, then kind of faded away, and then was benched late in the year...ugh...and you just hope for good news in the offsesaon, yet it always seems like a quiet offseason is a successful one...
