Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! Feels good to be 3-0, doesn't it? Feels even better that our best friend Jon Rothstein was made to look a fool. In case you missed it, he opened Sunday with this gem:
We'll know a lot more about Villanova after the Cats host upstart Towson. Tigers will have the best player on the floor in Jerrelle Benimon.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) November 17, 2013
Followed shortly by this:
One upset already today. Several other possibilities. Two games I have my eyes on? Towson @ Villanova. Stony Brook @ Indiana.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) November 17, 2013
For the record, Benimon finished with 11 points and 5 turnovers. Jon much have forgotten that there's so much Dwayne Anderson in James Bell. Stay hungry, stay humble.
And now, the "news."

What's that, another Mid-Atlantic Regional title via upset (this one, a major upset)? You're dam right it is and it was another 1-2 finish by Emily Lipari and Nicky Akande that got it done.
Villanova clamps down on defense, routs Towson 78-44 | City of Basketball Love
The local Philly media seems to think Villanova is for real, rather than Towson being wildly overrated. That's good to hear from a group that thought La Salle was the best team in the city just a few weeks ago.
Creighton 83, Saint Joseph’s 79 | White and Blue Review
If you didn't see this game on Saturday evening, you missed out. Though it pains me to say it, St. Joe's (PA) played great, and naturally, Doug McDermott broke their hearts at the last second (<3 you, Doug). Video below.
EVERYMAN (Villanova Theatre): 60-second review | phindie
There's something called a "drag-queen Death" that has a major role in this production. Is it bad that I'm intrigued as to what the hell is going on?
