The Sun's Arizin: The Villanova-St. Joseph's (PA) Holy War returns

It's baaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! Today is Holy War day, so make sure you're out of work on time for that commute home or to your local watering hole (or hopefully your local alumni gamewatch) to watch the 'Cats beat down on their noisy neighbors for the third straight year.

I talked myself out of the possibility that this is a scary game yesterday, so full speed ahead!

And now, the "news."
