    Villanova, Pa. (AP) — Villanova is reviewing an off-campus incident involving freshman forward JayVaughn Pinkston of Brooklyn and other students on Saturday night.

    Villanova put out a statement Monday saying it had been “made of aware of an incident” involving the freshman, but offering no details about what happened. The school says it has been in contact with Upper Merion Township authorities and is gathering information.

    While the review is ongoing, the school will make no additional comment.

    Villanova coach Jay Wright declined comment to SNY.tv Monday afternoon.

    A message was left for Upper Merion police.

    Kimani Young, Pinkston’s New York mentor, politely declined comment.

    Pinkston was named a McDonald’s All-American at Bishop Loughlin. He was named New York’s Player of the Year as a senior.
