The ‘Cats are on top once again, sitting at No. 1 on both the AP and Coaches’ Polls! Also—between recaps, previews, and the Big 5 itself—there’s a lot of discussion in this episode about the good old rivalries.

We will be releasing a new episode every Tuesday and Thursday. As always, you can ask questions that you would want to see discussed on the show by adding them in the comments section or tweeting us.

The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, or you can listen/download today’s episode straight from Pod-O-Matic.

Episode Description: The Villanova Wildcats have returned to the top spot in college basketball! Meanwhile, the women's basketball team also moved up in the polls as well. Both teams are undefeated, and the men's team held off a feisty La Salle Explorers team to improve to 10-0. As for the ladies, they downed Temple in their final game before taking a 10-day break. Brendan Reilly joins the show to discuss his ideas on how to make the Big 5 more exciting and why we shouldn't stray away from the round robin format. He also debunks arguments for a tournament and why limiting or leaving the Big 5 would only hold Villanova back. Lastly, we preview Wednesday night's men's basketball game against Temple.
