Bilal Benn, a talented former Cardinal Dougherty basketball player who is now at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia, has made an oral commitment to attend Villanova. Under NCAA rules, Wildcats coach Jay Wright cannot comment on potential recruits until they officially sign a letter of intent. Benn, a 6-foot-5 swingman, originally made an oral commitment to Siena. He could not be reached last night. He had disciplinary problems at Cardinal Dougherty that led to his transfer to Cherokee High in Burlington County, where he averaged 12 points a game after becoming eligible with four games remaining.

After four days of continuous adulation from students, faculty and everyone else on campus, the Villanova men's basketball team left last night for the airport and its trip to Detroit to participate in the NCAA Final Four. Wildcats coach Jay Wright said the departure came at just the right time. "I think we're ready to go on the road," he said. "I think we've enjoyed all the home cooking and accolades, but it's getting a little crazy around here right now. "So I think the timing is perfect that we get on the road, and get to make this a little bit more of a business trip.

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.

Harking back to the ride he experienced in Villanova's run to the 2009 Final Four, Penn State head coach Patrick Chambers announced Tuesday he had hired former Wildcats star Dwayne Anderson as an assistant coach.

Antonio Pena isn't the No. 1 commodity on Villanova's ninth-ranked basketball team. The fifth-year forward probably isn't the runner-up, either. Or perhaps even third, at least statistically speaking. Yet he's arguably been the most consistent. And maybe the most indispensable. As coach Jay Wright puts it, he's a rock. A Villanova senior. And the way he runs his program, there's really no higher calling. "I don't know where we'd be without him," said Wright, whose Wildcats (19-4, 7-3 Big East)

Just think if Villanova had Penn junior point guard Zack Rosen in its stable of backcourt players. It could have happened. "We recruited him, and he's no surprise to us," Wildcats coach Jay Wright said after watching Rosen go for 20 points and five assists, with only two turnovers, in Penn's 65-53 loss to Villanova last month at the Palestra. "We love him. He comes to play with our guys in the summer, and our guys always come out of there saying he's a helluva player. " The 6-foot-1 Rosen, who played with 'Nova's Corey Stokes for one season at St. Benedict's in North Jersey, spent an extra year at the prep school after suffering a broken elbow during his first season there.

Jay Wright believes the amount of talent you have on the floor and on the bench doesn't matter as much as the senior leaders you have showing teammates the Villanova way.

National observers took one look at Villanova's roster in the preseason, with five holdovers from the Final Four team and one of the best incoming freshman classes in the country, and felt the Wildcats were a top-five group that could return to the NCAA semifinals. Jay Wright, however, looked at his roster, found three missing names that posed a significant loss of leadership - those of Dante Cunningham, Dwayne Anderson, and Shane Clark - and saw the inexperience of five freshmen and a transfer.

Mississippi's offense could not be stopped in its first four basketball games. The Rebels averaged 89.2 points in their undefeated start. However, against No. 5 Villanova, that offensive firepower was quickly extinguished as the Wildcats defeated the Rebels, 79-67, to win the Puerto Rico Tip-Off last night. "We have a chance to be a pretty good defensive team," coach Jay Wright after Villanova improved to 5-0. "You can talk about it all you want, but you have to step up and do it. " The Wildcats stifled a Rebels offense that entered the game shooting 51 percent from the field.
