Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! Apologies that the Arizin went dark on Friday. That's going to happen from time to time during the offseason when there just isn't anything in news.
Today however, we've got a nice recap of Villanova's Team Camp from CoBL. The Team Camp is an annual lineup of scrimmages that acts as a way for the staff to develop relationships with both high school coaches and their players. This year programs such as Neumann-Goretti (DCR, Quade Green, Marcus Littles) and Mount St. Joseph (Jalen Smith) were on campus. Sounded like a good event.
And now, the "news."
