Thank You and Farewell

As the website approaches its fourth birthday, I would like to say thank you to everyone that has supported VUBenchMob.com. It has been on my mind over the last few months, but I would like to announce that VUBenchMob.com will not be coming back for a fifth season of Villanova hoops and will shut down. I’d like to express my thanks and gratitude to those that helped this site grow over the years.
