Villanova's Answer to Sister Jean Cheers On His Team's 'Band of Brothers'
One of the most important members of the NCAA champion Villanova Wildcats basketball team doesn't play on the boards.
Reverend Robert Hagan, the team's associate athletic director and chaplain, told Martha MacCallum the reason his team has been successful in recent years.
MacCallum compared Hagan's presence on the Pennsylvania team to that of Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt of Loyola-Chicago.

Hagan said the Wildcats are a "band of brothers" and that he helps them realize their "collective strength that they would not have as individuals."
He also credited Coach Jay Wright for reminding players that there is a life after sports.
Hagan said he and Wright teach the players on the team the importance of being "hungry and humble."
"We've got more mountains to climb and we've got more work to do," he said.
