From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!

Happy November Nova Nation! And while that means that Villanova basketball is only five days away, the NBA season is in full swing. Tonight two former ‘Cats take the floor in Donte DiVincenzo of the Bucks and Omari Spellman of the Hawks. Atlanta plays the Kings at home and Milwaukee will put their undefeated record on the line in a showdown with Boston on TNT.

Omari Spellman

Its been a rough start for the now 2-6 Hawks. Atlanta was blown away 146-115 at home by the Sacramento Kings. Spellman featured for 20 minutes tonight. The big man struggled to put his imprint on the game with only 2 points on one-of-three shooting. He also added two rebounds and three assists on the night.

Donte also contributed five rebounds and two assists on the night. Milwaukee finished with an impressive +16 point differential when DiVincenzo was on the floor. At the final buzzer, the Celtics handed the Bucks their first loss of the season — 117-113 at the Boston Garden.
