Phil Booth wants to return, but he isn’t healthy (yet)

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Happy Monday, ‘Nova Nation! I’m still riding the high of yesterday’s win, and I’m feeling even better given the interview Phil Booth conducted over the weekend with Joe Juliano.

He’s not healthy (yet), but if you go by Booth’s words it sounds like he’s just itching to get back on the court. And while I don’t think he’d outright lie to his Coach, I do wonder if Booth will declare himself fit to play at some point.

Something to keep an eye on.

And now, the "news."
