A Christmas edition of the Wildcat Watch!

NCAA Basketball: Final Four Championship Game-Michigan vs Villanova Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!

After a day off for Christmas Eve, the NBA is back with its marquee Christmas Day lineup. Four Wildcats are in action: Josh Hart (New Orleans Pelicans), Eric Paschall (Golden State Warriors), Donte DiVincenzo (Milwaukee Bucks), and Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks).
