Last week, we took a look at Villanova’s point guards. This week we take an infographic look at Villanova’s big men.
In case you do not receive our paper edition of The Villanovan, here is the infographic from this week’s “Beyond the Numbers” page, where each week we break down statistics on Villanova basketball. This week: A look at the point guards.
There haven’t been too many posts recently with the end of basketball season, but this is definitely one I wish I didn’t have to write. As a graduating senior, my time here is done covering the Villanova basketball team. It was a fun two seasons, and I’ll have a lot to look back on.
While on the court the team accomplished a lot that will be remembered for a long time, it was also nice to help start this blog and our Twitter page. With 225 posts and countless readers in just over a year, it is clear that there is a nice foundation for the future of The Villanovan to build off of.
Taking over will be current sports editor Nate McGann and assistant sports editor Jon Albert. I am excited to read what they have to say in what should be another great season.
Thanks for everyone who read the blog. Go Villanova!
Markus Kennedy has elected to attend prep school next season at Winchendon, delaying his admission till 2011. It was likely that Kennedy would have redshirted, and this a way he can avoid that and still play.
Thanks to vuhoops.com for the info.
It was Villanova who pulled off the greatest upset in NCAA tournament history when it knocked off the Georgetown Hoyas to win the 1985 National Championship. The Wildcats needed to play the perfect game that day, and in many ways, they did.
A lot of great stuff today to celebrate the victory:
- At 3 p.m. on ESPN2 several members from the 1985 team, including Ed Pinckney and Rollie Massimino, will be appearing on Outside The Lines.
- Where is the 1985 team today?
- 25 Things to Ponder on the 25th Anniversary (great read)
- David Cassilo
Scottie Reynolds received yet another impressive distinction today when he was named first team All-America by the Associated Press. He is the first Villanova player to be given this honor since Randy Foye in 2006. Joining him on the team were John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Evan Turner and Wesley Johnson.
Reynolds averaged a career-best 18.2 points per game this season and shot 45.7 percent from the field.
He is the fourth Wildcat ever to be named to the team, joining Foye, Kerry Kittles and Paul Arizin.
Here’s the paper’s recap of the season. There’s a lot to check out as we move forward to next year.
Ok, I guess it is time to acknowledge that Villanova did in fact lose in the second round of the NCAA tournament. This post is going up mainly because it’s not fun to see that picture of Omar Samhan everyday. Soon, we will put the season is perspective. Like all Villanovans, it just takes time.
