Naturally, Villanova is going to have a lot of former Champions in attendance. While rosters have yet to be announced, it’s likely that all the recently drafted players. Also in attendance could be NBA “vets” Josh Hart and Ryan Arcidiacono. After looking through the roster, here are some of the potential matchups of Wildcat greats we can look forward to.
