The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for May 13th, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Ryan Arch's summer plans, third chances, and the NBA Combine.

Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! What a game by the New York Rangers last night (I'm sure we have more than a few Capitals fans here as well). I'm currently scrambling to get on an earlier flight to San Francisco so I don't miss all of Game 7 tonight. Godspeed to myself.

Now, your morning news.

A D-I chance after two surgeries -
Sophomore and junior years are prime time for many NCAA Division I prospects, and that's when Jordan Prutzer did practically nothing on the softball field.

NBA Prospects have one last chance to make an impression -
The NBA Draft is fast approaching, and this year's class will visit Chicago next week to prove they belong on an NBA roster. No Mouph at the Combine (not a surprise in case you were thinking it was).
