vuhoops.com reported this afternoon that the seven members of the Villanova basketball squad have not sent a tweet since Friday. The last message sent by walk-on Dallas Ouano (paraphrased here) Goodbye twitter, see you in April.
A poster on Villanova's rivals message board reported a similar "signoff" on sophomore center Maurice Sutton's Facebook page over the weekend. Squad members are apparently unplugging their social network connections for the duration of the season. While there has been no official announcement from Villanova's Athletic Department, this is a similar move to that taken by the football programs at (at least) four universities around the country.
