Just like eight years ago, this Villanova team looks to have turned a corner that will bring them out of the current lull that they are in and back to where they belong. Although aggravating to watch at time, this team deserves a hell of a lot of credit for continuing to get demonstrably better, especially on defense. They have found their identity, and hopefully they will be able to build on it.
Is Villanova basketball back? It's well too early to tell, but it's starting to look better for the future. Until Saturday, my advice is to just revel.
