The Four #MONEYIST Players Entering March Madness 2017!
The first triple double in 3 decades for Villanova. Not that it isn't expected from a player as talented as Josh Hart. A defending NCAA Champion and a front-runner for national player of the year. Averaging 18.7 points with 6.6 rebounds with 3.3 assists per game. Hart opted out of the NBA draft this year and choose to stick around for another year of college ball. The gamble seems to have paid off.
Josh Hart has led Villanova right back to the top of the college rankings and seems to be in a prime position to defend Villanova's 2015 -2016 championship title. A senior guard with prolific scoring abilities, Hart contributes to all aspects of the game. A rock solid one on one defender who contributes everywhere on the court. Hart is a big part of the reason Villanova is a favorite to repeat as National Champions. Expect Hart to lead the charge for Villanova deep into March Madness, possibly claiming a second National Title.
Kansas -Frank Mason III
