Earlier today, Joe Juliano tweeted out the announcement that one of Villanova’s captains is on the mend:
Villanova reports that Phil Booth had the cast removed from his broken hand yesterday. He will not play today but there is a chance he could return Wednesday.— Joe Juliano (@JoeJulesinq) February 17, 2018
This is fantastic news as it means the Wildcats will get a few games back with Phil Booth before the Big East Tournament next month. It’s a remarkably quick recovery time for Booth at around 4 weeks. For the first time since 2017, the Wildcats will finally be back to full strength.
