Episode Description: For the fourth straight week and the seventh overall for the season, the Villanova Wildcats sit atop the AP and Coaches’ Polls with a No. 1 ranking. They are now just one week away from tying some personal records set last season. This past weekend, men’s basketball saw a monstrous 31-point performance by Jalen Brunson, leading the way to victory in Milwaukee (with a nice closing minute-and-a-half by Mikal Bridges to seal the deal). Women’s basketball took care of business on its weekend road trip, blowing out Xavier and avenging an earlier loss to Butler. Lastly, we close the show to discuss a few non-Villanova questions.
