It's been a whirlwind weekend for crying Villanova piccolo player Roxanne Chalifoux, but her international stardom led to a few perks tonight as the emotion-stricken Pittsburgh-area native appeared on The Tonight Show—taking home some swag (including Taylor Swift tickets, which almost made her cry again) and sitting…
We couldn't let the saddest piccolo player just go with a GIF, so here, by request, is a super-slow-mo rendition set to the proper musical backing.
It almost doesn't matter that St. John's got bodied by Villanova, 105-68, as the Wildcats clinched the Big East regular season title. Not when a photographer so perfectly captured Johnnies sophomore guard Rysheed Jordan doing this to Nova's Dylan Ennis:
Tonight's battle between ranked teams in Brooklyn went Villanova's way after Michigan's potential game-winning dunk was rejected by the Wildcats' JayVaughn Pinkston.
In a crazy finish, Villanova, the 1 seed in the Big East Tournament and no. 3 in the nation, was knocked off by Seton Hall on a last second shot by Sterling Gibbs. This is why we love March.
Take a look at the star players on each of the college basketball teams ranked in the top five this week, and you'll notice a common pairing: Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk has Elias Harris. Indiana's Victor Oladipo has Cody Zeller. Kansas's Ben McLemore has Jeff Withey. Duke's Seth Curry has Mason Plumlee (and now Ryan…
Last night in Newark, Villanova blew a
four-point lead with 16.3 seconds left and lost to Seton Hall by one. The defeat dropped the Wildcats to 18-11 overall, 9-7 in the Big East. It also solidified their status as the country's most baffling college basketball team.
A Ryan Arcidiacono three-pointer with seconds remaining in regulation forced overtime in Philadelphia, an opportunity of which the Villanova Wildcats took advantage in shocking Syracuse with a 75-71 victory.
There are goats. And then there are goats. Get a load of what Saint Joseph's junior forward Halil Kanacevic did during last night's loss to Philly rival Villanova. He shit the bed during the game's final two minutes, but he also made it easy for everyone to dog him for it because he had given the Villanova student…
This rumor has been kicking around on Twitter and at least one Big East message board the last couple of days. It made its way into our inbox on Monday night. Note that Wright was initially going to resign yesterday:
The Outsports folks better ready their banner font: On the heels of Phoenix Suns president and CEO Rick Welts coming out in Sunday's New York Times, former Villanova basketball player Will Sheridan has come out to ESPN.com's Dana O'Neil. (The same ESPN.com, it's worth noting, that employs "bible-believing Christian"…
Will Sheridan played for Villanova from 2003-07, or what we call the Allan Ray Heyday.
Villanova has a promotion where two lucky fans are chosen to try to hit a layup, free throw, three-pointer and half-court basket within 25 seconds. No one had ever won, until one day, both fans did. They received the worst prize ever.
We were directed to the message boards of a site for steroid enthusiasts — specifically to a post from someone claiming to be a Villanova baseball player wondering what to take to bulk up fast.
Since Villanova was unceremoniously bounced from the NCAA tournament on March 21 by St. Mary's, many emails have been fired off by frustrated alumni explaining how this happened to their precious team. The reason? Corey Fisher impregnated Scottie Reynolds's girlfriend, of course.
Just one early game today, but one that could tear the Holy See apart. Did the Pope intercede in the 'Cats near debacle against Robert Morris, or is he secretly a West Coast basketball fan who's grown bored with Gonzaga?
