The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for January 9, 2014

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring NovaRaptor living up to the hype, margins of victory, and a big blow to Creighton.

Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! That was a tad ugly last night, but we'll take it. It felt oddly similar to the first victory of the season over Lafayette. 16-point win, and the game was never really in doubt. Just not as good as you would have liked.

You what who was as good as you would have liked? NovaRaptor. We met up in Jupiter, FL last night and my man did not disappoint. When the overly tan, large-chested bartender brought the bad news that Duffy's did not serve Mike's Hard Lemonade, he was not fazed. That's because he had a six-pack in a brown bag in his car.

Guess what the number one news item of the day is?

Creighton's Grant Gibbs to miss a month with dislocated kneecap |
Maybe it's just me, but how do you dislocate a kneecap (by the way, I've seen this happen live) and only miss a month? Whatever the length of the layoff is, this is a massive loss for Creighton.
