Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! After a long and wonderful year that got extended by an overtime, Villanova’s reign as college basketball’s National Champions has come to a close. The new champs are Tony Bennett and the Virginia Cavaliers, a coach and program that Villanova’s Jay Wright has been close with during his recent run of success. The two teams have played three times in the past four seasons (twice in the regular season and one “secret scrimmage), and they’ve combined to win three of the past four National Championships. Just saying.
But now it’s time for the Wildcats and the rest of college basketball to focus on dethroning the new king, and that’s always marked by the immediate release of the “Way-Too-Early” Top 25.
