Happy Thursday Nova Nation! It’s going to be quick and dirty today, so let’s get right to the point. Villanova’s trio of Phil Booth, Eric Paschall, and Joe Cremo may be the best senior class in the country.
Booth has the experience and talent to be the heart and soul of this team. Paschall has the physical tools and talent to take on the role of the team’s go to scorer. And Cremo may as well be a hired gun brought in to embody Villanova’s montra of “Shoot ‘em up, sleep in the streets.” Pair them with a group of young guns that are ready to continue Villanova’s golden age, and it’s going to be one hell of a season for the Cats.
