Report: Maalik Wayns Leaving Villanova to Sign with Agent

Report: Maalik Wayns Leaving Villanova to Sign with Agent

The Ty Johnson era has begun on the Main Line.
CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman is tweeting that Maalik Wayns either has or will be signing with agent Andy Miller, who (VUHoops informs us) also represents another former Wildcat in Kyle Lowry.
Wayns declared for the NBA Draft last week, a move not uncommon for upperclassman who merely want to test their draft stock. Until a player retains an agent, he can always change his mind -- up to, that is, April 10 when he must decide one way or the other.
Of course, Wildcat fans need wait no longer to discern Wayns intentions. If Goodman's tweet is correct, Wayns will be departing Jay Wright's program after just three years, two of which he served as a starter.
The guard scored 1,191 points in his college career and averaged 17.6 ppg to lead the Wildcats offense last season. Really, Wayns was the Wildcats offense last season.
With his departure, the starting point guard role will fall to sophomore Ty Johnson, who filled in for Wayns when the junior missed three games in the middle of this year's Big East schedule with a sprained MCL. Johnson averaged 3.3 points, 2.0 assists and 1.8 turnovers in 17.7 minutes a night his freshman year. In those three occasions he started for Wayns, Johnson played 39.6 minutes, scoring 8.7 points, handing out 5.7 assists and surrendering 3.0 turnovers.
Without Wayns, and with big man Daniel Ochefu as possibly the only incoming recruit ready to provide an immediate contribution, next season could very well be another down year for the Wildcats. After all, they went only 13-19 with Wayns in 2011-12.
Thoughts on Maalik's draft stock? Villanova's 2012-13 season?

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
