Big men aren’t nearly as important as they used to be, to the point that Villanova’s lack of interior options might prove to be a good thing, especially since Jay Wright’s offense has always been perimeter-oriented.
Twenty years ago, the idea of Kris Jenkins playing center would’ve been unfathomable; he’d be giving up at least five inches and 30 pounds to opposing centers.
Now, though, a lineup with Jenkins at center would allow Villanova to run a positionless attack and create all sorts of problems for teams trying to stop a motion offense.
Also, while Wildcats might lack a talented frontcourt, their backcourt might be the best in the country.
