The three freshmen on Villanova's basketball team are fortunate to be able to practice and play with their new teammates right away, thanks to the Wildcats' participation in a Labor Day weekend tournament in Ottawa, Ontario.
But since this is the first week of classes, after four days of freshman orientation, you couldn't blame them if they appeared bewildered by everything.
"It was sensory overload," coach Jay Wright said yesterday. "Their heads were spinning. They had orientation and we're practicing.
"They can watch but they can't be in it, so they're going crazy. Then classes start and they start practicing, and we throw them in there when everybody [else] knows what we're doing. But I'll tell you what, they've handled it very well. Their basketball intelligence is very high."
