What a ride

By now, the Villanova Wildcats are back on the Main Line.
Here's a little advice to all those in the 'Nova Nation who are despondent today.
Do not let the poor performance in Saturday's 83-69 loss to North Carolina ruin what truly was a magical season.
It would have been even better with a national championship, but the better team did win.
This senior class will be missed.
Dante Cunningham, Dwayne Anderson, Shane Clark and Frank Tchuisi may not come in as one of the most highly touted recruiting classes in program history, but it leaves with more wins than any other class and one hell of a legacy.
All they did was get to the NCAA Tournament four times, reach the Sweet 16 three times, the Elite Eight twice and the Final Four once.
Only the Class of 1985 has a more impressive NCAA Tournament legacy.
As for next year, Jay Wright has a strong nucleus back led by Scottie Reynolds, Reggie Redding and Corey Fisher, and one of the best recruiting classes in the country. But they're freshmen, and freshmen take time to develop.
The Wildcats will be good. The only question is how good.
It'll be fun to see
