The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for April 16, 2015

Daily Villanova links.

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! I'm just getting caught up on a few things here as I've been out of town, but the Nicastro news is interesting. Just because Pitt is interested doesn't mean that Vince is (though I'd be surprised if he wasn't). Also, even though I've had more than my fair share of gripes, the problem is more systematic than one man. Even if a change is on the way in leadership, I don't think it will bring much change to the way things are done.

But hopefully I'm wrong on that last part.

And now, the "news."
