The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for November 27, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring women's LOIs, the Johnnies' continued struggles, and did DePaul win?

Huuuuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaaay! One more day until we take the court against USC in the opening round of Battle 4 Atlantis. I'm also starting to get very anxious because this game is at 1 pm on Thanksgiving and being that I'm at my girlfriend's parent's house, I have 0% control (possibly even negative control) over the day's schedule.

Daily reminder to check on your AXS TV channel access - there's been some debate as to the availability in the Philadelphia area through Comcast.

And now, the "news."

Johnnies struggle, but defeat Longwood 65-47 | Rumble In The Garden
I'm really starting to wonder if these guys really can turn it on by BIG EAST time, because if they don't it's going to be ugly. Can any of the Rysheed Jordan fanboys explain his performance? Because he has been T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E.

If you haven't watched San Francisco before, this kid is basically their best player. He is leaving basketball for "personal reasons" and no further detail has been given at this time. Hope everything is okay!
