Former Villanova Wildcats assistant coach Baker Dunleavy will make his triumphant return home on Saturday night.
It’ll be a nostalgic night for both Wright and Dunleavy after the latter spent 7 years on Jay Wright’s staff before taking over the Quinnpiac program in the spring of 2017. Dunleavy signed a 5-year extension this offseason after what many considered a successful debut season.
It’s the season-opener for the Bobcats, while Villanova got a tune-up in by beating Morgan State 100-77 on Tuesday night. The Wildcats weren’t great in the win, and will look for an improved performance before hosting the Michigan Wolverines in a National Championship rematch next week.

Love it when you walk into a store and there’s only one pack of an awesome beer left. This is available year-round, but I’ve found it extremely hard to find.
