The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for November 19, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring XC movin' up the pols, women's brawls, and holding barns hostage for the greater great.

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! You need not be reminded, but it is #BeatDelaware week. Four days until the hoops game on Friday night, and five days until the football game this weekend at PPL Park. Delaware sort of crapped the bed this past weekend against Richmond, but they're definitely still alive for the playoffs. Let's change that.

Lots of good content chatter yesterday from the Towson recap to the latest polls - make sure to drop in there and check it all out.

And now, the "news."
