Scottie Doesn't Go (and neither does Jay)
Scottie Reynolds withdrew from the 2009 NBA Draft and will return for his senior season. He may have had a chance to get drafted in the second round, but you have to respect him for coming back. He now has a chance to break some school records and go down as one of the best Villanova players ever.
This news comes on the heels of a recent report that Jay Wright interviewed for the head coaching job with the Philadelphia 76ers, but quickly removed himself from consideration. This is great news for Wildcat fans. If he passed up the chance to coach his hometown NBA team, I don't see him leaving Villanova for any other position in the country, college or NBA. Maybe he'll change his mind if he wins a National Championship, but if that ever happens Jay will have my blessing to leave.
