Happy Thursday Nova Nation! I’m sure all of you already have your shopping done for mother’s day, but if not consider this your last minute warning that you only have 3 days left! If you’re scrambling for a last minute idea for the Villanova Mom in your life, here are some ideas I’ve found around the internet:
Can’t go wrong with something shiny, but make sure you find the right flashy item for the Villanova mom in your life. Amazon can be a good place to start in any last minute shopping scenario. Villanova Women’s Jewelry
Villanova branded clothing is all over the internet thanks to the success of the program, but your biggest selection is still probably on the school’s official shop site. Villanova Women’s Clothing
There are plenty of places to find Nova memorabilia, but the 1985 guys have some good (if overpriced) stuff. If mom’s a collector, this could be a good option. 1985 Pavilion Collection
There aren’t a lot of options this time of year for tickets in the 2020 season. But if you’re able to make it to South Carolina this November, you can sign up for discounted tickets. Myrtle Beach Invitational Tickets
But of course, we all know what the perfect mother’s day gift is...
In other news, the latest college basketball trial comes to an end, Duke FINALLY beats out Villanova for a recruit, and Eric Paschall is officially headed to the NBA Combine. Enjoy!
