Deja VU: Old Rivalry

Villanova-Xavier hardwood rivalry goes back quite a few years – and we found proof!

From the 1956 Belle Air, captioned: “Bobby Powers drives in for a lay-up, aided by an effective block by Jim Fahey as Xavier’s Dave Pionteck vainly tries to stop the shot.”

The ‘Cats unfortunately lost this buzzer beater 71-70. Piontek went on to play eight seasons in the NBA.

Belle Air yearbooks are available for viewing during regular library hours. Ask at the Circulation Desk.
