Good Morning Nova Nation! It’s a quick one today as we all try to understand why the weather in the North East can’t make up its mind of what season it is. Please just give us more than a single day of sun!

But a quick note on Omari Spellman. Villanova’s big man had himself quite a season, setting the rookie rebounding record, blocking the most shots by a Wildcat since 2005, and scoring the most points by a freshman since Scottie Reynolds. If he decides to return for one more season, he’ll be one of the best players in college basketball.
