Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! The Sporting News has a great piece out about the things they're most looking forward to next season, and that content got us thinking. Typically when we think of a new season we think of the new players joining the program and a fresh start for the chance at glory.
What we don't think about are all the other things that impact the basketball landscape - coaching changes, rule changes, rivalries, etc. Until I read that, I forgot how excited I was to see the 30-second shot clock implemented. A faster pace is better for the game, and should help Villanova.
So, what are you looking forward to?
And now, the "news."
