Thirteen Takeaways from Wednesday’s Boston College & Villanova Game

Boston College led for most of the second half, but couldn’t hold on in the end as #3 Villanova held the Eagles scoreless down the stretch. Here are some of the takeaways from the game. 

1. Steffon Mitchell is still the lifeblood of this team. The senior seemed to do all the little things for the Eagles against Villanova. He grabbed 11 rebounds, 4 blocks and a pair of steals. His lack of offensive productivity still is glaring, but Mitchell has all the makings of a potential ACC Defensive Player of the Year candidate. 

2. Might as well get into the biggest issue right away. The final four minutes were a disaster for the Eagles. All game long BC had thrived on getting the ball inside and driving to the hoop. Credit goes to Villanova for adjusting to this and really locking down the paint. We saw how hard it

Former Villanova star Saddiq Bey happy to be starting his NBA career in Detroit

Saddiq Bey sat on a couch in his grandmother’s home in Bowie, Md., while more than a dozen family members and friends gathered around the television awaiting the announcement of his NBA destination.

But as the former Villanova forward rose from the couch and put on a Detroit Pistons cap as the 19th selection in the first round of the draft Wednesday night, he knew exactly where to go first.

“My Mom was the first one I hugged,” Bey said Thursday over the telephone from Detroit.

Drewana Bey, an instructional superintendent of secondary schools in the District of Columbia public schools system, played college basketball at North Carolina-Charlotte and would critique her son during their long rides together during his AAU travel team days.

“It meant a lot,” he said of the post-announcement celebration. “The camera really couldn’t show everybody that was behind me, but just the support I’ve had

Villanova University to Send Private Ethereum Blockchain Into Space to Test Inter-Satellite Communication

Space, the next frontier for blockchain.

Villanova University’s College of Engineering is sending a private Ethereum blockchain into space to test whether distributed ledger technology (DLT) can help satellites exchange data.

Working in collaboration with the non-profit Teachers in Space, Villanova’s engineering school secured a flight for its blockchain on a Firefly Aerospace rocket slated for launch on Nov. 20 from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The rocket will carry a “Serenity” satellite that will include Villanova’s private blockchain mounted on a Raspberry Pi, a credit card-sized single board computer.  

Hasshi Sudler, an adjunct professor at Villanova who is leading this project, said the large number of communications and other types of satellites that are already in space brought into focus how blockchain technology could help this sector. Currently, there are almost 2,800 man-made satellites orbiting Earth, 1,425 of which belong to the U.S., according to data collected by the Union of Concerned Scientists.
