Happy Monday, ‘Nova Nation! I know we’ve beaten the point to death on here so I’m not going to go into a huge diatribe on the issue. But this is what the press is writing about: Villanova’s legacy. I think Josh Hart, Kris Jenkins and Darryl Reynolds will be remembered as winners. Plain and simple.

The next few days we’ll all likely write about the season, what the highs and lows were, what worked and what didn’t. We’ll then shift our focus to recruiting for the long spring/summer before next falls begins.

Anything else you want us to write about? Let us know.

And now, the "news."
