Per a press release from Berk Communications, yesterday Roc Nation Sports announced the signing of Villanova University guard, Naismith Award finalist and 2017 NBA draft prospect Josh Hart.
A key contributor to the program from the moment he stepped on campus, Hart played an indispensable role in Villanova’s 2016 NCAA championship season, recording 15.5 points per game and 6.8 rebounds. In Hart’s four seasons at Villanova, the Wildcats tallied a historic 129-17 win/loss record. At the end of his senior season, Hart was named Big East Conference player of the year and a Naismith Award Men’s College Player of the Year finalist. He is one of just two players in Villanova school history to tally at least 1,800 points, 700 rebounds, 250 assists and 150 steals.
Hart joins a Roc Nation Sports basketball family that now consists of 13 athletes, including Kevin Durant, Justise Winslow, Rudy Gay, Caris Levert, Jeremy Lin, Willie Cauley-Stein, Wilson Chandler, Ty Lawson, Henry Ellenson, Mike Gbinije, Skylar Diggins and James Young.
