It wasn’t all long bombs, these Wildcats could really throw down!

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! While sweeping the internet for today’s links, I came across a video of the best dunks of the season. There were a few Wildcat dunks that should have made the cut, but man are some of these athletes impressive!

So of course today we’re asking which Wildcat had the best dunk of the 2017-18 season. There were a bunch of great dunks this year, but three sequences really stood out above the rest. And the nominees are:

Mikal Bridges over all of Gonzaga

Omari Spellman’s block/putback against West Virginia

Eric Paschall’s Man Jam vs West Virginia
