Villanova is currently ranked first overall in the polls for college basketball, but if you only watch mainstream sports media, you would never know. Villanova is currently 11-0 with ranked wins against Notre Dame and at Purdue. Josh Hart is the real standout on the team this year. He is averaging just over 20 points and 6.5 assists per game. But again, you’ll never see his highlight unless you watch a Nova game.
Villanova won the national championship last year and lost only two players from that team. They are currently the best team per the AP poll and deserve the respect of it. On New Years Eve Nova will be playing number 10 Creighton in Nebraska. Take a break from football and watch the defending champs play on the road in a top 10 matchup. But for now, I expect the Wildcats to blow out some teams to prove last year wasn’t a fluke and this year isn’t either.
