Tyus Battle Takes in Villanova Game; Ohio State Next
After delaying his visit to see Villanova play, Tyus Battle was on hand Sunday afternoon when the No. 8 Wildcats clipped Marquette, 73-56.
The 6-foot-6 Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard’s sophomore guard is one of the top prospects in the Class of 2016 and considered a future pro by his coach.
“I love the way [head coach] Jay [Wright] talks to his guys,” Gary Battle, Tyus’ father, told SNY.tv. “They have a very unified group. Ty enjoyed the visit.”
