The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for July 23, 2014

Daily news roundup, today featuring the future of 'Nova lax, the upcoming Australian basketball boom, and a 4-pound hamburger.

Huuuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaay! Make sure you check out TRT's Twitter timeline from yesterday, as he was able to hop on the phone with Jay Wright to talk about incoming freshman Phil Booth. There's some good sound bites in there, and after reading it you'll be really amped for the impact that Booth should have on next year's team.

Remember, Wright talked the same way about Josh Hart last season. Good things are happening.
