Happy TGIF Nova Nation! It’s the first time in a LONG time that I didn’t have any links about Villanova’s mens basketball team, but that’s the sign that the off-season has officially begun. No worries, we still found plenty of good stuff to get you through the tail end of the work week.
But when the news is slow, we turn to the never ending content machine that is Twitter! It’s been a while since we went highlight hunting for the class of 2019, so let’s see what we can find.
Antoine didn’t have the McDonald’s All-American game he was dreaming of, but experts on hand were raving about how good he looked in the practice sessions leading up.
If you’ve been in the “Antoine can play the point” camp of the comments section, this guy agrees with you.
He can actually play point when he has to but his team had a good amount of guards so he played small forward most of the time pic.twitter.com/2zgBZW4aif— Jeremy Mensah (@champagnepa_pa) March 25, 2019
JRE did have a pretty great All-Star game, including this awesome baseline post-move!

In addition to an incredibly successful season, Moore was the Washington Posts DC Player of the Year.
Dixon just became his school’s all-time leading scorer this season... no biggie.
Don’t sleep on Dixon’s ability to contribute right away at Villanova, this class is so stacked!
Jay Wright's 2019 recruiting class is arguably the best class he's ever signed. Eric Dixon, the No. 63 overall recruit, will help in the post via scoring & rebounding.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) March 4, 2019
