The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 15.9 points and 5.5 rebounds for the Rams in his freshman season. Fordham was able to win only four games in A10 play, so Paschall set his sights on the bright lights of Villanova. After sitting out the 2015-16 season (during which the Wildcats won the National Championship), the forward played significant minutes for his new team. He mainly came off the bench and put up 7.2 points and 3.8 rebounds while making eight starts. Paschall moved into the starting lineup as a redshirt junior and averaged 10.6 points and 5.3 rebounds for a deep team. He helped the Wildcats march through the bracket by posting a double-double against Texas Tech and 24 points on 10-for-11 shooting from the field in the Final Four against Kansas. Returning for his senior season, the New York native had a featured scoring role in which he provided 16.5 points and 6.1 rebounds. He was rewarded by being named to the All-Big East First Team. Paschall was selected with the 41st overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors.
