Villanova great Ed Pinckney made a video recently to encourage Villanova fans to support Supernova — a team consisting of Villanova basketball alumni -- for a spot in The Basketball Tournament (TBT). TBT is an event that features a number of teams, selected by fans by voting on their site.
VU Hoops recently noted the launch of the campaign to get Supernova into the field in a FanPost by the team’s organizer J23green. The team includes notables like Scottie Reynolds, Malcolm Grant, JayVaughn Pinkston and others from recent Wildcats teams. They need to make the top-9 in fan voting to get a guaranteed spot in the field, however, and are currently short of that goal.
Rumor has it that Mike Nardi will make an appearance on the bench as coach.
TBT games will be broadcast on ESPN networks this summer, and will be played in Philadelphia and other locations. Supporting Supernova just takes a couple of clicks, and will keep the Wildcats on your viewing schedule this off-season.
