Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! We've had several folks on here call for a Villanova all-small-ball lineup, akin to the Golden State Warriors 'Death Lineup' that consisted of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green.

He's started Josh Hart, Kris Jenkins and Eric Paschall along with Jalen Brunson and Phil Booth. You could throw Donte DiVincenzo and Mikal Bridges in contention for that lineup as well.
So, let's hear your favorite potential 'Death Lineup' for 'Nova in the comments.
