Villanova Players by The Number: 21 is for Harold Pressley

Forward 1982-1986
A starting forward on the 1985 National Championship team, Harold Pressley was the team's best interior scorer not named Ed Pinckney.  Pressley came to Villanova  from the state of Connecticu as a heralded recruit (McDonald's All-American) and left after having one of the finer careers a Villanova player has ever had.  According to my dad (who is over 50) Harold Pressley had one of the greatest senior years in Villanova History and judging from my cursory examination of stats I can't argue with him.  In essence, Harold Pressley was a rich man's Dante Cunningham, except he didn't have the responsibilities as a center that Dante did.
