Happy Monday Nova Nation! How was your weekend? Unless you won the lottery, it probably wasn’t as great as Donte DiVincenzos. The Big Ragu may not have broken any Combine records, but he was certainly the star in Chicago last week. Not only did he put up the best numbers in vertical jumps to show off his athleticism, he also performed quite well in the scrimmages.

Omari Spellman also performed well and likely improved his draft stock. He and DiVincenzo have 10 days left to meet with teams, consult their advisors, and make a decision on where they’ll be playing basketball in the fall. While I’d still love to see them back at Villanova for another season, I couldn’t be happier for the two of them in what looks to be quickly approaching professional careers.
In other “news”, Bridges looks locked into the Top 10, Villanova may still be a Top 10 team, and the rumor mill says Lowry to the Sixers. Enjoy!
