Get to Know Your Villanova Wildcats

Jan 16, 2007, 2:14 PM EDT

We’ve yet to catch the college hoops bug this season, but it will surely happen sooner than later.  Basketball Prospectus has a nice breakdown of the Big East.  We found this tidbit on Nova’s new faces insightful (towards bottom).

Joining Reynolds in the rotation this season will be a highly
anticipated trio of freshmen. McDonald’s All-American Corey Stokes is a
6’5" wing who arrives billed as the best pure shooter Wright has ever
pursued. Corey Fisher comes with almost as much advance praise, though
at this writing the 6’1" guard is suffering from tendinitis and did not
play in the Wildcats’ first game. And 6’0" point guard Malcolm Grant
came off the bench and scored 16 points in Villanova’s season-opening
86-64 win over Stony Brook. Note also that 6’5" sophomore Reggie
Redding recorded steals at a higher rate last year than any other
returning Wildcat.

We aren’t Villanova fans at heart but enjoyed going to see many of their games last year at the Wachovia Center.  Mostly for the opponents and the undergrads.
