We'll have to wait a year for them to make their NCAA tournament debuts, but these freshmen stood out this season and should star in 2020-21.
- Villanova president picked to chair Big East board
- Former Wildcat Dillon takes over as Nova coach
- Villanova's Perretta to retire after 42 seasons
- Nova to start $60M Pavilion renovation in June
Villanova has hired former player Denise Dillon to replace the retiring Harry Perretta as women's basketball coach.
Harry Perretta is known for his quirks (an obsession with "All My Children") and his friendships (he palled around with both Geno Auriemma and Pat Summitt). After 42 seasons, the Villanova coach is calling it a career.
Cameron Onken had the second triple-double in Villanova history, freshman star Madison Siegrist had a big double-double and the Wildcats pulled away in the second half to upset No. 12 DePaul 76-58 on Sunday.
Harry Perretta, who has been Villanova's head women's basketball coach for 42 years, announced Wednesday that he will retire at the end of this season.
She left her family, friends and basketball career to become a cloistered nun. Now, more than two decades later, Sister Rose Marie reaffirms her choice of faith over fortune.
Natisha Hiedeman scored 22 points, Allazia Blockton had 19 and No. 8 Marquette beat Villanova 93-55 on Sunday for its 12th consecutive victory.
While teams such as Rutgers, Villanova and Notre Dame rose to the occasion and dominated the nonconference portion of their schedules, teams such as Stanford, Virginia and Oklahoma have ground to make up between now and March.
Villanova will begin a comprehensive $60 million renovation of the Pavilion, with the work beginning in June.
Roshunda Johnson scores 21 points, Jazzmun Holmes and Morgan William both add 12 and the Bulldogs cruise to a 108-62 season-opening win.
The Big East named DePaul's Chanise Jenkins its player of the year and Doug Bruno its coach of the year, with Marquette's Allazia Blockton taking top freshman honors.
Villanova coach Harry Perretta earned his 700th career win Sunday, as well as his 300th Big East victory.
Knowing that Villanova's Emily Leer was about to end her career with 999 points, West Virginia coach Mike Carey gave his players some special instructions.
Yes, the traditional Big East powers have moved on. But DePaul's ascension in the conference is hardly be default.
Stanford will rely on the post play of Chiney Ogwumike while Michigan will have to hit 3s, as opposite offenses meet in Tuesday's second round.
The first half against Tulsa ended in a 24-24 tie and brought back memories of 1998, when 16th-seeded Harvard stunned No. 1 Stanford on its home court. But the Cardinal went on a 23-7 run and shot 65.5 percent in the second half to end Tulsa's hopes.
It's hard to argue with results. Placing trust in first-year coach Kim Barnes Arico, Michigan adjusted to a new system and landed a spot in the NCAA field.
NBC Sports Network verbally offered the Big East between $20 million to $23 million a year for six years to acquire the league's media rights, sources told ESPN.
The Big East is hoping to resolve its divorce with the seven departing Catholic-based basketball schools within the next few weeks in time for a summer 2014 departure, according to a source.
