The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for February 19, 2014

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Arch's game winner, getting to the Final 4 the old fashioned way, and the 76ers make a great gesture.

Huuuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaay! What a win last night! A little too stressful for me considering I was just trying to decompress after a crazy weekend, but I'll take it. I was surprised to see how many of the game thread attendees immediately went for the "we deserve to lose" line in regulation.

News flash - Villanova played their asses off 2 days after getting stomped and traveling 1500 miles back to the east coast - with 10 extra minutes of game time no less. There's no "deserve to lose" in that effort.

And now the "news."
