Catching Up

My computer has been fried for the past few weeks so I haven't been able to update.  Contrary to rumors,  I haven't "voluntarily withdrawn" from the blog.  I've simply been snorting coke off of a dead stripper since the month began.  I'll Try to update more often from now on.  Peace nuggets.

Villanova Players by the Number: 31/154/Duke #20 is forTaylor King

Taylor King, the "Fact on Villanova Sports" of the 2009-2010 Villanova Wildcats

I think the best thing to come out of TK's stint as a member of the Villanova Basketball team is whenever someone at any level of basketball throws up a retardedly long three pointer that they have no business taking my first thought goes directly to Taylor King. Thats about it, don't really care about the rumors, just mailing it in on this post.

Also, are we still doing this blog? Or...

BREAKING! Conference Shakeup Bonanza

In news exclusive to Fact on Villanova Sports, we have recently received word from Joe Schad's sources in the Arkansas State University athletic department that the Red Wolves will move to the Western Athletic Conference effective in 2011.  This move figures to have sweeping implications across college sports as the Sun Belt Conference will lose one of their juggernauts.  More to follow on these shocking developments later.

Villanova Players by the Number: 22 is for Gary McLain

Guard, 1981-1985
In this spot I could have very easily used Gary Buchanan, but Gary McLain is more interesting because of his dazzling performance in the 1985 NCAA Championship Game and his subsequent admission in Sports Illustrated that he was high on cocaine during the national semifinal against Memphis State as well as in the White House rose garden when the team was being honored by President Reagan.  Compounding matters was his assertion that Rollie Massimino and Villanova administration knew that he had a drug problem and did nothing about it.  The circumstances around McLain's article in SI are disputed to this day, and even back in 1987 when the allegations first surfaced.  Even if McLain was high on cocaine, this was prior to the death of Len Bias (who was on the Maryland team Villanova beat in the 1985 Tournament) which shed further light on the dangers of cocaine.  Getting away from the cocaine allegations, McLain was probably the single most important player on the floor against Georgetown in 1985.  His ability to break the legendary press of The Hoyas paved the way for Villanova to win the game.  Though I mainly chose him because of the controversy he generated, Gary McLain really could ball.
