Villanova not affected by one-and-done rule, but college basketball is better with it

I'm guessing there are differing opinions

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! Can you believe it's been ten years since basketball instituted the one-and-done rule? NBC penned an article for the anniversary and I briefly passed it by, merely because Villanova hasn't had any one-and-dones. But I do believe college basketball has been better with the rule. It gives us a fresh crop of stars every year, and it gives us a nice continuity of talent in the game as well for all those 'croots that don't quite make it to the NBA that quickly.

Just one man's opinion, and I'm interested to hear whether you like it or not.

And now, the "news."
