    That's brutal.  Nova's not a bad place to land though.

    Better than him ending up at an ACC school!

    Can't blame a kid for wanting to go to the defending champs, particularly given that Nova is also closer to home.  It was pretty clear that he backed out on us not the other way around.  It was likely because he had something better, and that could be viewed as better.  

    I see us having many recruiting battles with Nova over the next 5 years.  KK wants to play a very similar system offensively from what I can tell.  I'd be fine with that because I have argued for 10+ years that Jay Wright is what we should be modeling.  We shouldn't be trying to outdo UNC, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and Arizona at the "chase the 5 stars athletes" model.
