Villanova's Josh Hart & Kris Jenkins among most coveted players in college basketball


TGIF, 'Nova Nation! I like seeing articles like CBS' latest piece, where Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander polled coaches about the player they would bring to their program if they could have anybody. I don't always agree with them (for example, wanting Harry Giles and his two knee surgeries above ANYBODY else), but I find it interesting nonetheless.

With that said, both Josh Hart and Kris Jenkins got votes from coaches around the NCAA. We're loaded, you heathens.

And now, the "news."
