Monday’s Arizin: Daily links for Sept. 18

Ryan Arcidiacono rejoins the ‘Nova Knicks, and they’re hopefully going to swing Mikal Bridges to do the same eventually.

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Happy Monday! Over the weekend, Ryan Arcidiacono rejoined the New York Knicks. He previously was on the Knicks’ roster for the end of the 2021-22 season, and the early parts of the 2022-23 season, until he was involved in the trade to the Portland Trail Blazers, which brought Josh Hart to New York.

Now, the band is getting back together. The Knicks now have four Villanova alumni and former teammates in Arcidiacono, Josh Hart, Jalen Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo. They’re already working on the recruiting front.

Here are your links to begin the week:
