Tyus Battle to Visit Villanova for Seton Hall Game
Less than a week after experiencing the thrilling environment of the Duke-Syracuse game, 2016 Gill St. Bernard’s guard Tyus Battle will be at Villanova Friday night when the Wildcats face Seton Hall.
“We love Coach Jay [Wright],” Gary Battle, Tyus’ father, told SNY.tv. “It’s close to home for us and Nova is a guard-friendly school with a great academic situation.”
The 6-foot-5 Battle was thrilled by the Syracuse environment and said before the trip he liked them “a lot.”
