Villanova Basketball's Daniel Ochefu is finding his form again

New, comments

The Chef is gaining his confidence back.

Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! Another Big East title is wrapped up, and so Villanova won't have much stress this week with DePaul and Georgetown at home. Instead we get to over-analyze the crap out of their performances heading in to the Big East Tournament and March Madness.

(So more of the same).

Speaking of that, Daniel Ochefu had a fantastic game on Saturday against Marquette. It's nice to see that he, and his teammates and coaches, feel like he's finding his game again after the injury issues. Villanova doesn't need him to be dominant in March, but they do need him to be confident. Success will follow that.

And now, the "news."
