Episode Description: Donte DiVincenzo lights up Madison Square Garden and lifts the Villanova Wildcats to victory with another career performance against the St. John’s Red Storm. He was unfazed by the Johnnies’ defense and was locked in against them. Now, the men’s basketball team prepares for another classic Big East squad in rival Georgetown Hoyas. It’ll be the first time Patrick Ewing goes up against the ‘Cats--as a Hoya--since 1985. The women’s basketball team continued its loaded road trip, playing the second and third game in a tough seven-day stretch. It was able to beat Seton Hall, but fell to St. John’s. Now, the Wildcats are back home and are gearing up for the unofficial Big 5 championship game between them and Penn on Wednesday night. Kyle Lowry makes a big time gift for the Little Willy. We also answer your questions about Collin Gillespie, Jordan Tucker, and beavers.
