    I think it’s not just about winning…it’s about how we compete.
    This is good stuff, Kevin…

    Kevin,

    I am curious. Does Villanova go after the “one and done” sort of recruits or do they put a team together the old way? With a bunch of juniors and seniors getting most of the playing time?

    (Not directly related to your article but figured you would know. 🙂 )

    Steve,

    Villanova’s focus is much more on putting a team together the traditional way. They are very upperclassmen driven. They’ll occassionally pursue the one-and- doners, but it’s not their main mode of operation.

    Ironically, they currently have a freshman on the team who is a potential one-and-doner (Omari Spellman). But about a month before the season started, he was declared ineligible by the NCAA on some stupid technicality of a pretty much useless and antiquated rule. So he won’t get to play until next year.

    Thanks. I like schools that win the old way. My Sooners did that the last couple of years.

    Of course, rare is the one and done guy who looks at OU as a first choice… 🙂
