According to Joe Juliano of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the starting junior Dwayne Anderson sprained his ankle in practice on Monday and is listed as "day-to-day."

Many Villanova fans have credited the swingman Anderson's insertion into the starting lineup with the Wildcats' resurgence in the second half of the season.

This injury does not sound all that serious, but it would be a huge blow to the 'Cats if Anderson were sidelined for their first round game against the 5-seeded Clemson Tigers on Friday night.

Fortunately for Villanova, Anderson still has more than two full days to heal, as the Wildcats do not tip off until 9:50 p.m. Friday night.

Anderson will play unless his foot is in a cast.... Less than double digit stitches stopping Scottie.... NO WAY.

Any report on Cas?

Hello, Pete-

Per Anderson's injury - Clemson has a deep rotation - nine or ten players, depending on how you define it, and 'Nova needs everyone to be available to counter that.

You have a great blog here on the Wildcats. Also, I appreciate the link back to my site.

I have researched and written a detailed preview on Clemson, which I have posted on Villanova Viewpoint. I thought that perhaps it might be of interest to you and your readers... Comments are welcome.

I just hope that the Anderson ankle situation doesnt turn out to be like Drummond's He's a tough player though, so he should play. There is also a really nice article on Anderson on philly.com.

It was redding who hurt his ankle. No correction from the Inquirer... wonder if this article had it wrong?
