Villanova Basketball Champions Eric Paschall and Omari Spellman reunited on Warriors

Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! Just when you think the hype around summer league is over, they pull us back in! Yesterday, Villanova’s 2018 Championship starting front court of Eric Paschall and Omari Spellman were reunited as Spellman was traded from Atlanta to the Warriors. Granted, it’s still just summer league and neither player has locked up a spot on the team’s roster for the 2020 season. But if they both make the cut, it will be the first time in 30 years that two Villanova players appeared on the same NBA roster.

This actually was a much more common occurrence throughout the 70’s, and again in the late 80’s.
