Villanova legend Andreas Bloch turns 25 today. Bloch starred for the 'Cats from 2000 to 2004, draining threes, creating mismatches, and generally wreaking havoc for four years.

Is it a coincidence that Bloch wore the #1 jersey before subsequent VU stars Kyle Lowry and Scottie Reynolds donned it? No. Bloch was perhaps the most underrated player in Villanova history, and his legacy lives on through his #1 jersey.

Andreas is now playing pro ball across the pond, and is doing quite well. According to his sports agency, Bloch is currently tearing it up for the Freiburg squad in the GER 2 League in Germany. Bloch is averaging 6.8 points and 6.5 boards in 30 minutes per game.

So happy birthday, Andreas Bloch. Hope we see you soon at the Pavilion.
