Ok I have a crush

While my college basketball heart belongs to North Carolina, a part of me is starting to fall in love with that school on the Main Line in Philly, Villanova. Over the last couple of years, no team in the Big East has been as entertaining to as the Wildcats.

A couple of years ago they were a top seed and played some of the best basketball. There line up of Allen Ray, Randy Foye, Kyle Lowery, and Micheal Nardi played some of the best basketball in the country and also made for some great match ups. During the season it was no uncommon to see the under six foot Kyle Lowery driving against a 6 foot 8 inch white guy.

Then last year, the "Nova Nation'' unleashed Scottie Reynolds (right) and went from bubble NCAA team to a team that made the tournament easily.

Now this year Jay Wright can return to his three guard line up with Reynolds being joined by hot shot freshmen Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes. Throw Shane Clark on the floor with them an you have a group that can break you down at any time.

And over the next couple of years, this three guard break down style is going to continue and my love for them will continue to grow.
