Villanova, a powerhouse in college basketball, has produced several NBA talents over the years. Hart, Brunson, and DiVincenzo all honed their skills at Villanova before leaping the professional league. Their bond with the university runs deep, and it’s evident in their play on the court.

Jalen Brunson, now a key player for the Knicks, recently weighed in on the situation. In response to Villanova’s highlight reel featuring their performances against the Philadelphia 76ers, Brunson quipped, “In their eyes, we’re not a Philly school. But when we win, apparently we’re a Philly school.” It’s a playful jab at the fickle nature of fan loyalty. When the Wildcats succeed, they’re embraced by Philly fans; when they struggle, the connection seems to fade.

Josh Hart’s Passionate Defense

Josh Hart, never one to mince words, had a more passionate response. When asked about Philadelphia fans’ reactions to Villanova’s posts, he didn’t hold back. “Why not?” Hart exclaimed. “That’s stupid. Villanova is in our blood, bro. What you mean? That’s a bond that goes deeper than where you’re from or who you’re rooting for or whatever. We have a bond there that goes beyond basketball. That goes beyond any of that stuff” 22.

Hart’s sentiment captures the essence of college sports—the camaraderie, the shared experiences, and the pride in representing a university. For him, Villanova isn’t just a school; it’s family. And family sticks together, whether they’re wearing Knicks jerseys or Wildcats gear.
