Happy Wednesday Nova Nation! While Villanova’s season may be over, that doesn’t mean there aren’t games to watch. Tonight that’s especially true as the McDonald’s All-American Game will tip-off tonight at 7PM EST. While Villanova fans are used to rooting for the Big East, tonight we’ll be fans of Team West which will feature star recruits Bryan Antoine and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl.
Bryan Antoine is the #2 Shooting Guard and #14 Overall Recruit in the class of 2019, per 247 Sports. He started the week as runner up in the events 3-Point Shooting Contest, and now focuses on tonight’s main event. There’s been a lot of buzz around Antoine looking very impressive in the first few days of practices, and we could be in for quite the show from him when the lights are their brightest.
Villanova’s other participant in tonight’s game will be Jeremiah Robinson-Earl. He’s the #3 Power Forward and #15 Overall recruit in the Class of 2019, per 247 Sports. Robinson-Earl could be the centerpiece of what will be an exceptionally athletic and deep front court for the Wildcats next season. But it won’t just be his basketball moves that Villanova fans will fall in love with.
