Bridges currently projects as a Top 10 pick in the draft, and was widely assumed to be heading to the NBA after helping the Villanova Wildcats win their second National Championship in three seasons.
Mikal will forever be at the heart of the “golden age” of Villanova basketball. He’s one of only three players to play in both National Title games, and he played a significant part in both championship runs.
VUHoops and the rest of the Nova Nation wish him nothing but success as he takes what he learned at Villanova to the next level. Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!
