A Look at the Point Guards

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.

Signing off

Hey everyone,

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!

-David Cassilo

Markus Kennedy delaying admission till 2011

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 for the info.

25 years ago today…

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:
