No excuses this year.

Happy Monday, ‘Nova Nation! Y’all have covered it well, but it’s worth repeating how great a draw this is for Villanova. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have any trepidation about the second around, but I really do believe we couldn’t have asked for anything better overall.

It feels like 2016 all over again - if we can handle our business over the weekend, there is no reason to think the confidence boost won’t carry this team to the final weekend.

And now, the “news.”
