Earlier this week, members of the Villanova Wildcats basketball program did something much greater than winning the national championship. Villanova’s Ryan Arcidiacono, Daniel Ochefu and assistant Ashley Howard visited a young boy with cancer at his home for some quality time together.
Per Philly sports site Crossing Broad, the trio visited four-year-old Blaise Davis in a big playground that was built for his enjoyment in a friend’s remodeled home.
“It was unbelievable,” Andrew Davis told Yahoo Sports. “We’re big basketball fans in this house and my wife and my father-in-law have been very big Villanova fans since they were kids. Blaise had followed Villanova during the season and he was very much aware of who the players were and how important they were.”
Not only did they get to hang out with a handful of the Villanova athletes, it was some very big names.
That blew the Davis family away.
“Tom told us he was expecting the 10th or 11th guy, which would have been fantastic in its own right,” Davis said. “Then out of the car step those two.”

Kudos to the Wildcats for such an incredible and classy gesture.
