Villanova Basketball's Spanish exhibition tour is over

No basketball until the fall :(

Huuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaay! Not much in the way of news yesterday, so let's just wrap it up with Villanova's Spanish tour being a massive success. It would have been nice to have Darryl Reynolds and Omari Spellman available, but their absence afforded the staff the ability to give heavy minutes to other players who needed it for a variety of reasons.

I'll have a little more on this tour later today, time permitting.

And now, the "news."

Foul rates dip after media timeouts | The blog
Since media timeouts tend to occur in the 15, 11, 7, and three-minute windows, I don’t think it’s a stretch to assume that media timeouts have some influence on foul rate. Immediately after these breaks, a player’s foul rate drops. It’s as if rested players are better at avoiding fouls.
