Villanova's Basketball's biggest rival coach is saying nice things about Jay Wright

What on Earth is happening?

Happy GameDay, 'Nova Nation! More of a scrimmage today really, but 'Nova does need to take care of business to hold on to their #1 seed heading in to the conference tournament. So just win, baby.

More interesting are Phil Martelli's comments about the Wildcats. Poor Phil is having one of his best seasons in recent memory and he's going out of his way to praise his biggest city rival. That'll win the fans over! But really, it's hard to remember that these guys are probably much more on the friend spectrum that we realize.

But still Phil, let the hate fill you up!

And now, the "news."
