Happy Hump Day!
Villanova’s Media Day has come and gone, and it’s been revealed that three of the five spots for the starting lineup are definite locks. Those slots belong to Phil Booth, Eric Paschall, and Collin Gillespie. As for the other two, they’re up for grabs. Who do you think should fill them in, and do you agree with the three penciled in starters? (Obviously, Booth and Paschall are just returning to their posts from last season.)
We had three different reporters at Media Day and we’ll be rolling out a few features over the coming days, so keep an eye out for those!
