Villanova's Josh Hart continues to get National Player of the Year buzz

Will the 'Cats rely even more on Hart now that Spellman is out?

Huummmmmmmmmmp Daaaaaaay! NBC Sports put out a ton of content yesterday, with a lot of Villanova angles to boot. The most prevalent one being Josh Hart as a leading candidate for National Player of the Year. Most of the NBC guys agreed that it was pretty neck and neck between him and Grayson Allen.

If you subscribe to their podcast, take a listen, where one of the big arguments is that because Duke has so much talent, Allen may not put up the insane stats that he did last season. Villanova on the other hand, may rely more on Hart now that Omari Spellman is out for the year.

And now, the "news."
