Gilchrest likes 'Nova 'A lot'

Villanova is still in the mix for St. Patrick's forward Michael Gilchrest, considered the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2011.
That's the word from Alex Schwartz from the NBE Basketball report.
"I like Villanova a lot," Gilchrest told Schwartz after last week's Prime Time Shootout in Trenton.
The 6-7 senior forward listed Villanova among his six favorites. The others are Oregon, Kentucky, Texas, Michigan and Georgia Tech.
Gilchrest has been to Villanova several times. He was spotted at two football games in the fall and was in attendance Monday night when the Wildcats fell to Connecticut at the Wachovia Center.
The Somerdale, N.J. native is an AAU teammate of Villanova signee Markus Kennedy.

Snowball in D.C

You never know who you're going to run into on the Metro in D.C.
Waiting for the Red Line at the Metro Station were none other than Scottie Reynolds, Antonio Pena, Villanova assistant coach Doug West and graduate manager George Halcovage.
It seems that the quartet thought taking the subway to the Verizon Center for Saturday's game with Georgetown would be faster than the team bus.
Oh well, no one is perfect.
Reynolds, Pena, West and Halcovage were still waiting for the subway long after the team had arrived at the Verizon Center.
They walked into the arena around 10:35 a.m.
Reynolds likes to get to the arena early to shoot so it will be interesting to see how well he plays against the Hoyas.
Meanwhile, the blizzard that shutdown the captial did not deter at least 200 Georgetown students from getting to the Verizon Center around 9 a.m. for a noon start, according to Georgetown senior sports communications director Bill Shapland.
