Happy Hump Day Nova Nation! Some great articles today on players from Villanova’s past and present, but this morning we’re going to focus on the future.

We start with local forward Eric Dixon, who was just named the Class 6A Pennsylvania Player of the Year and a member of the All-State First Team. The junior averaged 24 points per game, and is on pace to become Abington’s All-Time leading scorer next season.

On the coaching front, Villanova’s Video Coordinator, Mike Clark, was named one of the best 30 Under 30 coaches in the country. Is there anything or anyone Jay Wright touches these days that doesn’t turn to gold?

In other “news”, Delaware loves Donte, Chicago loves Ryan, and ESPN loves 5-star recruits. Enjoy!
