The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news & links for July 14, 2015

Daily Villanova links.

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! The big news yesterday was Tyus Battle's verbal commitment to Syracuse. There's this big debate about how Syracuse now has a Top 5 class and the sanctions aren't hurting them. Two thoughts here. (1) They won't have a Top 5 class at the end of the cycle and (2) if I were Syracuse I wouldn't count this as a win just yet considering Battle's Michigan commitment lasted for about 5 weeks.

And now, the "news."
