Good Mid-Morning Nova Nation! For those of you early risers, you’ll get your crack-of-dawn morning links back next week. For the rest of us, it was a fun ride while it lasted...
In real news, it’s time to ask the question again: Would your rather have Villanova or the field to win the Big East Title? Villanova is seeking its 5th consecutive title, the previous four being outright. In fairness, this is probably the stiffest competition the Wildcats have seen during their unprecedented Big East title run. Unfortunately for that competition, this might also be the best Villanova team during that same span. Big surprise here, I’ll take Nova.
In other “news”, Villanova is good at basketball, Phil Booth and Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges are all good at basketball, Cole Swider is also good at basketball, and we all laugh at the PAC-12. Have a great weekend Nova Nation!
