So, when was the last time Villanova's basketball team got any good news? Yesterday, senior guard Corey Fisher, the team's top scorer, underwent what coach Jay Wright described as a "precautionary" MRI exam on his right knee. Fisher has tendinitis in the joint, and his status was listed by a team spokesperson as day-to-day. The 19th-ranked Wildcats (21-9), who were once 16-1 and have now lost their last three games, are at No. 4 Pittsburgh (26-4) Saturday afternoon in their regular-season finale.

Villanova senior guard Corey Fisher underwent an MRI exam Wednesday that revealed tendinitis in his right knee, coach Jay Wright said. Wright said Fisher's status was day-to-day leading up to the Wildcats' regular-season finale Saturday at No. 4 Pittsburgh. Fisher, who is averaging a team-high 15.7 points in 30 games, had been in a slump since scoring a career-high 34 points in a Feb. 19 overtime victory over DePaul. He scored eight and two points in the Wildcats' next two games, and broke an 0-for-21 drought on three-point attempts with a pair of threes in the second half of Monday night's 93-72 loss to Notre Dame.

VILLANOVA'S Josh Hart, who coach Jay Wright insists would start for most teams, has been named the Big East's Sixth Man of the Year. The 6-5 sophomore averaged 9.7 points and 4.4 rebounds for the nation's fourth-ranked team, which just finished the regular season 29-2. That's a program record, bettering the 28-3 from last season. The only other Villanova player to be so honored was sophomore Corey Fisher in 2008-09. The Wildcats, who have won their last 12, will next play either Seton Hall (16-14)

Episcopal Academy senior Gerald Henderson scored his 2,000th scholastic point as the Churchmen topped nationally ranked St. Patrick (N.J.), 60-55, last night in the penultimate game at the PrimeTime Shootout at the Sovereign Bank Arena. Thirteen seconds into the third quarter, the 6-foot-5 Henderson drove for an off-balance layup and his milestone deuce. The game was momentarily stopped and Henderson's achievement was recognized by the PA announcer. Henderson becomes just the second Episcopal player to score all 2,000 of his points at the school.

Up to this point in the season, Villanova still was seeking a signature victory to prove to the rest of the Big East and the nation that it was NCAA material. Playing the last college basketball game at the Wachovia Spectrum, where Jay Wright said it felt like "100 degrees in there," the Wildcats got it. Going into that game, the Wildcats were 0-4 against ranked teams, having lost to Texas, Marquette, Louisville and Connecticut. Wright said that although he understood outsiders' perception, he wanted to make sure that his team did not place too much emphasis on those losses, looking ahead instead.

Guard Malcolm Grant, who became a part of Villanova basketball lore after leading the Wildcats back from a 21-point deficit in December against Louisiana State, is leaving the team and will transfer. The university said yesterday that it had released Grant from his scholarship and that he will pursue a transfer to another university. Grant, a 6-foot guard, averaged 5.6 points in 29 games in his freshman season at Villanova but had three explosive scoring games, two of which keyed Cats victories.

As expected, Villanova senior guard Scottie Reynolds has been named to the six-man all-Big East first team. But maybe what wasn't so anticipated was the fact that he was the only unanimous selection. The conference head coaches do the choosing. They are not allowed to vote for one of their own players. The player of the year will be announced tomorrow in New York between sessions of the opening-round doubleheaders of the conference tournament at Madison Square Garden. Reynolds would appear to be the favorite.

Villanova previewed some of its taller lineups Tuesday night during a 95-58 victory over District of Columbia in an exhibition game at the Wells Fargo Center. The units worked well, mainly because the sixth-ranked Wildcats held a height advantage at every position over the Division II Firebirds. But they will be helpful later on, particularly when 'Nova begins Big East Conference play in January. Coach Jay Wright started his three seniors - Corey Fisher, Corey Stokes, and Antonio Pena - along with sophomores Mouphtaou Yarou and Maalik Wayns.

Maalik Wayns, a 6-foot point guard from Roman Catholic High, will hold a press conference Friday to announce where he will attend college. All signs point to Villanova. Several sources close to the rising recruit have indicated that the Wildcats are his choice. And Wayns, who has an unofficial visit to the Main Line campus planned for tomorrow, intimated as much Tuesday evening. "Basically, it's [Villanova]," said Wayns, a junior-to-be. "If everything goes the way I expect, I'll commit.

PHILADELPHIA college basketball fans can remember the shot. Scottie Reynolds raced the length of the court and made a tough runner to send Villanova in its fourth Final Four. While it is the last shot, and the celebration that ensued, that people will remember, there was a lot more to that team than just Reynolds' heroics. That year, 2009, the Wildcats were balanced with talent, experience and leadership. Dwayne Anderson was one of the senior starters on the squad, and led it both on and off the court.

Jay Wright did not build his reputation at Villanova, has not maintained a consistent measure of excellence in his basketball program over the last decade, with players like Darrun Hilliard. Hilliard is a Villanova guard, and for a long time, the term "Villanova guard" has carried a certain connotation, has conjured memories of certain players who played a certain way and fit a certain physical and stylistic profile. When one thinks of a "Villanova guard" during Wright's tenure as head coach, the names are familiar: Randy Foye, Allan Ray, Kyle Lowry, Mike Nardi, Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher, Maalik Wayns - none of them taller than 6-foot-4, all of them tougher than goatskin, each a key contributor to a nine-year stretch that saw the Wildcats reach the NCAA tournament eight times, the regional semifinals four times, the regional finals twice, and the Final Four once.

There are a lot of guards running around in the preseason on Villanova's Davis Center practice floor, and that makes Jay Wright happy. Wright has seen some good guard groupings on his court on a fairly regular basis over the years. Randy Foye and Allan Ray arrived on the Main Line in 2002 and combined with Kyle Lowry and Mike Nardi to carry the Wildcats to within one win of the NCAA semifinals in 2006. That Final Four berth came around in 2009 thanks to the play of guards Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher, Reggie Redding, and Corey Stokes.

When Dexter Strickland was trying to decide on a college, he knew he could always count on his friends from Villanova to give him the good word about the Wildcats. If it wasn't Maalik Wayns, it was Dominic Cheek, two players who would commit to Villanova's incoming freshman Class of 2009. There also was 2007 Villanova commit Corey Fisher, a high school teammate of Strickland's at St. Patrick in Elizabeth, N.J. "They did a lot," Strickland said Tuesday. "They kept talking about it each and every day. Me and Maalik were very close.

Villanova's Big Five schedule appears to be the perfect training ground for Maalik Wayns to establish himself as the team leader, something he showed Tuesday night at crunch time with La Salle ready to spring a stunning upset. Wayns sank only 5 of 16 attempts from the field, but three of the five came at the end of regulation and in overtime as he sparked the Wildcats to a 76-69 victory over the Explorers at the Pavilion. Villanova coach Jay Wright is expecting good performances from Wayns.

Twenty-seven days. For 27 days, at the height of the 2010-11 basketball season, Villanova went without a victory. At a time when teams were building momentum for conference tournaments and the NCAAs, the Wildcats were in free fall, losing their last six games, including a first-round NCAA defeat to George Mason that brought their season to a sudden end. After a 16-1 start, the Cats finished 5-11. There were nagging injuries to Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes, plus a late-season injury to Mouphtaou Yarou, and the February schedule was brutal.

THERE SEEM to be two Villanova men's basketball teams: The one with numbers attached to it. And that other one that only the Wildcats seem to see. We see a team with zero seniors, with more than half its scoring gone from last season, a team picked to finish in the second tier of the Big East this season. They see depth and height, the likes of which Jay Wright said he's never had before, even during that Final Four run in 2009. "We're even bigger," the 'Cats' coach said at yesterday's media day. We see a six-game losing streak that ended last year's thud-to-the-ground finish.

PATRICK CHAMBERS knew there would be plenty of setbacks in his first year coaching the Penn State Nittany Lions, but maybe not this early. "We barely had 10 guys at practice a week ago," he said. With four senior starters gone from a basketball squad that finished 19-15 last season under former coach Ed DeChellis, the last thing Chambers needed was a number of preseason injuries. Promising freshman guard Trey Lewis has been hampered by an unspecified ankle injury, and sophomore guard D.J. Newbell has been missing with a broken shoulder.
