Happy Thursday, ‘Nova Nation! Yes, I know that you know that Villanova Wildcats is looking for a point guard. But Josh and Co. over at CoBL put out a good breakdown of the Big 5 recruiting effort (and Drexel) so head over there to check that out and give them your clicks.
FWIW, I actually didn’t get to see any of the Quinerly-Weaver matchup last night, but would be interested to hear some thoughts. It sounds like JQ didn’t play all that much since the game meant zilch. You can check him out again today as he goes head-to-head with Devon Dotson in the opening round of the UAA Finals.
And now, the “news.”
