The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for May 2, 2014

New, comments

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Bekkedam's SEC charge, Jill Biden at graduation, and the NBA is boring.

TGIF, 'Nova Nation! The men's lacrosse team took out Marquette in the Big East Tournament semi-finals last night, so they'll face Denver at Villanova Stadium (Saturday, 4:30pm ET) knowing that a win will send them to the NCAA Tournament. That game will air on Fox Sports 1.

I encourage you to slot that in to your schedule - I was never a lacrosse player but it's a fun sport to watch.

And now, the "news."
