The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Basketball's guard wars are back

New, comments

Ohhhhh this sounds fun!

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! Jay Wright sounds very happy with freshman guard Jalen Brunson, who has been matched up so far against Ryan Arcidiacono. You'll probably also be pleased to hear that Arch has been 'killing' Brunson in practice so far.

That's the best of both worlds, I think.

And now, the "news."

Jay Wright did it intentionally. The move was nothing crazy. In drills this fall, Villanova's coach wanted his senior guard Ryan Arcidiacono, last season's Big East player of the year, and freshman Jalen Brunson, the most accomplished freshman guard in the country, going at each other.
