The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for May 2nd, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring JayVaughn Pinkston's maturity, lax awards, and Kriss Kross.

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! Villanova vs. Georgetown lax semifinals are tonight, live from Villanova Stadium at 7 pm ET. The game will be aired on ESPN3 if you are so inclined as to support a team that is 2 wins away from making the NCAA Tournament. I hope you are so inclined.
