Scottie Reynolds needed just one extraordinary freshman season to be thrust into the national spotlight as the face of the Villanova basketball program. Now Reynolds has been asked to accept extra responsibilities in addition to being his team's top scorer, best perimeter shooter, and the player on whom the Wildcats can rely to make the big shots. He has been named a co-captain, a role Reynolds does not take lightly and welcomes eagerly. "It means a lot," the sophomore guard said.

Scottie Reynolds stepped onto the court and immediately flashed a smile that couldn't be erased. The looseness he played with during his four years at Villanova was evident once again. Before the game started, he swayed to the warm-up music at Philadelphia University's Gallagher Athletic Center. Slipped inside his bright neon blue sneakers, he pointed to the crowd when he was introduced by the public address announcer. As he dribbled the ball up court, he held up hand signals, yelled, "Hey!

No team called Scottie Reynolds' name in the NBA draft in June. The Phoenix Suns eventually called the Villanova guard's name for a summer-league spot and an invitation to training camp. But Prima Veroli, a second-division team in Italy, trumped that, signing him to a 1-year contract that includes some financial guarantees. "The financial offer was something that blew us out of the water," said Lee Melchionni, one of Reynolds' agents. Reynolds, the fourth first-team All-America in Villanova history and the Wildcats' second-leading career scorer with 2,222 points, had mulled the Suns' offer, but, Melchionni said, "The financial security that Prima Veroli's offer provides made this a sound decision for Scottie.

Scottie Reynolds spent roughly 2 months living with agent Arn Tellem and Tellem's family, preparing for the NBA draft and summer league competition. "He's like my fourth son," Tellem said last night. "He's become part of our family. " And, as in any family, it's time for the person even temporarily in charge to help that "son" find a job. Tellem confirmed that he's getting closer to that goal after Reynolds - fighting back from a slight Achilles' tendon problem - played three games for the Phoenix Suns in the Las Vegas Summer League.

The sweat mixed with the blood from the cut over Scottie Reynolds' right eye, and the combination ran down his face in a rivulet that forced him to the bench at the worst possible time for Villanova yesterday. And Georgetown's surge while the Wildcats' medical staff worked on Reynolds' bandage resulted in tears being shed by Villanova fans lamenting the likely end of their team's NCAA dreams. The Wildcats were outscored by 14-6 in the 5 1/2 minutes their leading scorer and primary ballhandler sat on the bench in the second half, and the Hoyas rolled to an 82-63 victory in the Big East tournament quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden.

Scottie Reynolds watched Oklahoma's basketball team play its Senior Night game on television and breathed a sigh of relief. That was the sound most Villanova fans made when they heard last summer that the point guard was headed for the Main Line instead of the Great Plains. Coming out of Herndon, Va., he was a hot recruit who opted out of his commitment to Oklahoma when coach Kelvin Sampson left for Indiana. The sigh came because that choice did not start a negative chain reaction.

The combination of factors that Villanova needed to have a chance at knocking off streaking Connecticut were not panning out yesterday at the Wachovia Center. The Wildcats' biggest player, 6-foot-10, 275-pound Casiem Drummond, was watching from the bench in street clothes. The Huskies were battering them on the backboards. The 'Cats weren't getting fouled, going to the line just once in the first 19 minutes, 38 seconds of the second half. But Villanova came up with a mix of sparkling offensive play from Scottie Reynolds, their most error-free Big East game of the season, and tight defense down the stretch to upset the 13th-ranked Huskies, 67-65, and snap the visitors' 10-game win streak.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - The words sound astounding, coming from the mouth of Scottie Reynolds: "I've scored enough points. . . . In fact, I'm sick of scoring. " This from a man who scored 2,214 collegiate points, second all-time at Villanova? Who perpetrated the greatest mad-dash scoring play in school history, elevating 'Nova to the 2009 Final Four? Reynolds hasn't lost his mind, or his edge. He just recognizes that 2,214 points didn't get him to the NBA and that his resumé now includes being the only first-team Associated Press all-American since the NBA-ABA merger not to be drafted by the NBA. After the briefest of stays last fall playing in Italy, Reynolds is a rookie point guard for the Springfield Armor in the NBA Development League, and he's been told what part of his game needs developing.

Scottie Reynolds wore a sleeve on his right knee and tape on two fingers of his left hand, and he limped after Villanova completed practice yesterday at the Wachovia Center. The injuries are in large part responsible for the Wildcats' star sophomore guard's slow start in Big East Conference play - 15 points on 5-of-18 shooting in two games - but Reynolds won't blame them. "Everybody's got their bumps and bruises," he said. "You can't make any excuses about your performance out there.

Villanova welcomed back former coach Rollie Massimino for an evening of reminiscing and exhibition basketball, but the real news for the Wildcats last night came off the court. Villanova coach Jay Wright said senior forward Shane Clark underwent arthroscopic surgery yesterday to clean out loose particles in his right knee at Bryn Mawr Hospital. He will be out for four to six weeks. Clark, who averaged 7.1 points and 4.3 rebounds last season, had been practicing but felt it best "to have a minor procedure to ensure that this problem doesn't persist during the season," Wright said.

Considered the best-dressed coach in college basketball for seven years now, Villanova's Jay Wright is clearly a man of style. That said, Wright's tailor, Gabriele D'Annunzio - the man largely responsible for Wright's courtside look - has a key piece of advice for the coach when he chooses the suit for his team's Saturday-night Final Four game against Oklahoma. Go with the dark-blue double-breasted. That would be one of the four suits D'Annunzio made for Wright at the beginning of the season at his Newtown Square bespoke men's shop, D&B Tailors.

OTHER THAN that magical April Fools', Jake Nevin-inspired night in Lexington 31 years ago, it remains the shining moment in Villanova basketball lore. Reggie Redding to Dante Cunningham to Scottie Reynolds to the 2009 Final Four. Just as the Wildcats had drawn it up. "I don't think it was a fluke that it happened," Reynolds recalled, as if it happened yesterday. "It worked in practice. But that was different. " You think? The Wildcats, who'd finished fourth in the Big East that season, were the No. 3 seed in the East Region.

Ryan Arcidiacono played in his 140th Villanova game on Sunday when the Wildcats advanced to the Sweet 16. That is the new school record - breaking the mark of 139 held by Dante Cunningham and Scottie Reynolds - and will be until Thursday when the NCAA tournament continues with Arcidiacono playing at least one more. It was fitting that Villanova's advancement to the deeper rounds of the tournament for the first time since 2009 coincided with Arcidiacono setting the only individual team record he will hold.

With 30 seconds to go and Villanova's second-round hurdle in the NCAA tournament successfully cleared on Sunday, senior guard Ryan Arcidiacono walked off the Barclays Center court to the bench and was caught in an extended hug by his coach, Jay Wright, who thumped him on the back several times. "I just told him, 'This is your team. You're why we're here,' " Wright said. "He's one of the best. I think you can really say he's one of the best of all time. " Arcidiacono played his usual quietly spectacular game in the Wildcats' 87-68 victory over Iowa, a win that carried them into the Sweet 16 for the first time since their Final Four team of 2009 did it. Sunday's performance also ended a run of three straight crashes in the second round as a No. 1 or No. 2 seed in 2010, 2014 and 2015.

PHIL MARTELLI calls them the bluebloods. You know, the royalty of the college basketball universe: North Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Michigan State. The usual suspects. None of them has won 91 of its last 104 games, as Villanova has, even if the only numbers many folks get hung up on are 2-2, which is 'Nova's record in the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons, first as a No. 2 seed and then a No. 1. Martelli doesn't happen to be one of those people. He views things differently, because of the way the Wildcats are getting it done.

(On the occasion of Villanova being voted No. 1 in the nation in both polls, it seemed like a good time for Dick Jerardi and Mike Kern to have a talk about the Wildcats - where they've been, where they're going, and how they might compare to some of the great Jay Wright teams of the recent past. For the record, the Wildcats are the first Philadelphia team to be No. 1 since Saint Joseph's in 2004.)   DJ : I love watching this team because of the effort, passing and understanding of how to win close games.

IN PHILADELPHIA, we have been blessed with a history of great college basketball and great college basketball coaches. Think about it: We've had true legends like Harry Litwack, John Chaney, Jack Kraft and Rollie Massimino and future NBA greats like Dr. Jack Ramsay and Chuck Daly. Our current crop of coaches is keeping up the tradition. In fact, for Jay Wright and Phil Martelli, the two local coaches whose teams reached the NCAA Tournament this year, this season could be said to be the best coaching jobs of their illustrious careers.

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.

As anticipated by most, including Villanova coach Jay Wright, Wildcats junior lead guard Maalik Wayns is indeed going to put his name into the pool of available candidates for the NBA draft. "I want to test the waters at this point to see where I stand," the 6-foot-2 Roman Catholic High product said in a statement released Wednesday by the university. "I think this is a smart decision for Maalik at this stage of his career," Wright said. "I look forward to working with him as we go through this process.
