Villanova’s Atlantis trip may have regained some pazazz.

Happy Monday, ‘Nova Nation! The Mitchell Robinson saga - if you have been following - may be nearing its conclusion. The 5-star center originally left school unexpectedly (and was suspended by Coach Rick Stansbury), was then granted his release and took visits to Kansas and hometown New Orleans.

His options were never great though - Robinson is talented but extremely raw. He desparately wants to enter the NBA Draft next year, but he also needs to play. He was never going to get a waiver from the NCAA so would have had to sit out at Kansas and was reportedly considering just practicing close to home at New Orleans.

And now, he looks likely to actually play for Western Kentucky. Villanova has them in the first round of the Battle 4 Atlantis, and Robinson versus Omari Spellman should be a fun matchup if it comes to fruition.

And now, the “news.”
