The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for January 28, 2014

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Arch, officials still learning, and a vintage Big East t-shirt.

Happy Tuesday y'all! That wasn't pretty last night but you'll never catch me complaining about any win AT Georgetown. For whatever reason, the Verizon Center has not been kind to us over the years. This season is going to be a grind, and this team is responding to the big loss to Creighton well with back to back tough road wins. Smile, everyone.

And we get some much needed rest before the short trip across town to Temple.

And now, the "news."
