Arcidiacono, Ochefu throw out first pitch at Phillies game

Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu will be household names in the city of Philadelphia for a long, long time.

The two seniors were key members of Villanova’s national championship team this season, and it’s safe to say they are enjoying the feeling of being on top. At the Philadelphia Phillies’ home opener on Monday, Arch and Ochefu each tossed out a ceremonial first pitch:

Arcidiacono was named Most Outstanding Player of the 2016 Final Four, while Ochefu served as the backbone of the Wildcats' defense all season long. They will be missed at Villanova but always applauded in the city of Philadelphia.
