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

New, 7 comments

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."
