New, 76 comments

We're not so sure!

All weekends must come to an end. There was plenty of news that came out of the weekend, not least of which was Chris moving into a new home. Dante Cunningham is working on his range from the corner, Ryan Arcidiacono may be the best player in the league, and Michael Jordan challenged Jimmy Butler on the hardwood.

Lets not forget to take a moment of silence for Villanova Football alum, Mark Cordes.

And now, the "news."

Villanova’s point man took home a share of the Big East Player of the Year award with Dunn, somewhat controversially, but despite this, he is Villanova’s leader and a real threat from anywhere on the court. Though his per game averages are slightly lower than both Dunn’s and Smith-Rivera’s (about 10 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists and a steal), Arcidiacono was easily the best at controlling the game, boasting an impressive nearly four-to-one assist to turnover ratio.

"The Villanova-Penn football game on the Main Line had to be rescheduled so it did not conflict with the pope’s visit. Why not just invite the pope to go on over to campus? It’s like a time tunnel anyway with the stone buildings, statues, medieval art, and black frocked friars walking across the campus. He should feel like he’s just at home."
