The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for December 23, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Bridges' big night, Jerami Grant's injury, and the best fast break we've seen this year.

Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! It is officially Syracuse Hate Week so allow me to kick things off by referring you to this Fact on Villanova Theater Sports article from 2009. In their you will find tales from true gentlemen Eric Devendorf and Paul Harris.

Soak it all in. This week is going to be really fun, you guys.

And now, the "news."

Bridges gets 1000th in Great Valley’s win over Wood | City of Basketball Love
Congrats to Mikal, a huge achievement that not many high school players accomplish anymore. Side note: The recruiting roundup will debut this Friday (the only reason it didn't happen last week was the site crash).

Jerami Grant Injury Not Serious, Will Play Against Villanova | Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician
Grant sprained his ankle after a fall during the High Point game. It looked worse than it was, and he has self-proclaimed himself healthy enough for Villanova at the weekend. And that's good, because I don't want any excuses when we win.

Tyler Ennis rises in latest Freshman Tracker | ESPN ($)
Won't even be the best Ennis on the court when it's all said and done next Saturday.

Second half surge propels Seton Hall past Eastern Washington, 92-70 | South Orange Juice
Ryan was at this game? Yes, Ryan was at this game. You'll have to ask him why he wanted to subject himself to it, but I can only assume he's into masochism.

Did DePaul win? |
No. Illinois St. did. When you score less points than the opposing team, you pretty much always lose. The Blue Demons are now 7-5.

Doug Gottlieb blasted by Garrick Sherman after joking about his beard |
When I first saw this, you could have probably seen my smile from the Moon.
