Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday…Ed Pinkney

Start here


In light of the Villanova Wildcats winning the National Title this edition of Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday will feature 3 members of the last Villanova Wildcats team(1985) to win the title…starting with Ed Pinkney.

A 6′9″ forward from The Bronx, New York, Pinckney led regional eight-seed Villanova Wildcats to the NCAA title over the heavily favored Georgetown Hoyas in 1985. He was the recipient of the Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player after registering 16 points and 6 rebounds in the 66–64 victory, widely considered as one of the greatest NCAA tournament upsets of all time. This game is featured in the book The Perfect Game by Frank Fitzpatrick
