The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for September 9 ,2014

Daily Villanova links.

Happy Jalen Brunson in-home visit day, 'Nova Nation! Jay Wright and John Groce will each have one final sitdown with the Brunson family to make their case, and as of Monday night no decision has been made. If you're a glass half-full kind of fan, Villanova is the favorite due to the timing of the announcement following the visit to the Main Line.

But for you glass half-empty types (who have probably sat through a few decisions that didn't go Villanova's way), that trip to Philly may have sealed the deal for the hometown Illini.

Wednesday should be eventful, one way or the other.

And now, the "news."
