So, when was the last time Villanova's basketball team got any good news?
Yesterday, senior guard Corey Fisher, the team's top scorer, underwent what coach Jay Wright described as a "precautionary" MRI exam on his right knee. Fisher has tendinitis in the joint, and his status was listed by a team spokesperson as day-to-day.
The 19th-ranked Wildcats (21-9), who were once 16-1 and have now lost their last three games, are at No. 4 Pittsburgh (26-4) Saturday afternoon in their regular-season finale. They need a win to avoid playing in Tuesday's opening round of the Big East Tournament in New York.
