DeCourcy -- Reynolds One of Top 10 #2 Guards

Virtually every 2009-10 preview that mentions Villanova identifies the Wildcat squad's strongest feature is the back court. Should anyone be surprised that The Sporting News' long-time College Basketball writer named Scottie to his list of "College basketball's top 10 shooting guards"? Maybe that Scottie was not identified as a point guard (most likely where he will play after Villanova)? While I have not always appreciated DeCourcy's perspective on DI basketball, it is good to see he gave a nod to these two 'Cats (see my earlier post on Corey Fisher). His comment about Scottie ("He is on pace to challenge the 2,200-point mark.") may be a bit optimistic, but appreciated because he has clearly done some homework.

Also honored by DeCourcy -- fellow Big East off guard Jerome Dyson of Connecticut.

Congratulations Scottie!
