The Sun's Arizin: JayVaughn Pinkston is still helping out Villanova Basketball

Good on ya, JVP!

TGIF, 'Nova Nation! Big weekend ahead. Home basketball games on Friday and Sunday are the sandwich buns to Saturday's do-or-die road trip to James Madison. We've been over it countless times, but I really do believe that a win (CAA title or not) will be enough to push the Wildcats in to the playoffs. Let's go boys!

By the way, Sunday's game against Akron starts a pretty good spell of OOC teams with Top 100 RPIs (at least according to the early results). So get ready for some better games, maybe.

And now, the "news."
