Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! Sorry for the late start to the day, I’ve been busy getting ready for a week at the beach. Myrtle Beach, to be specific. But more on that tomorrow, today we have big news from overseas.
Villanova living legend Scottie Reynolds has officially signed with Strasbourg, bringing him back to France and the Champions League.
SIG Strasbourg lands Scottie Reynolds https://t.co/5TnrXqFTj8— Sportando (@Sportando) November 18, 2019
It’s a big move for Reynolds who had been playing in Greece earlier this season. Villanova’s 2nd All-Time leading scorer was averaging over 13 points, 6 assists, and nearly 2 steals a game before he made the move. We here at VUHoops wish Scottie the best of luck, and can’t wait for the day when his jersey is hanging in the rafters at the Pavillion.
In other “news”, Bryan Antoine is cleared for games, Nova Football is back in the Top 10, and Cross Country is honored as they prepare for the National Championship. Enjoy!
