The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for March 24, 2014

New, comments

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring a weekend filled with losses.

It's Monday, you guys. Two days have past since the season ended, and that feeling of resentment is still there. I've stayed away from commenting to try and gain some perspective before I unleash my thoughts (which I'll do in the next few days). At the end of the day, it's disappointing to go home early, and I felt like this team could have achieved much more.

As you'll see below, it wasn't the best of weekends for Villanova athletics. Let's get all this out of the way in one fell swwop.

And now, the "news."
