State of the Nova Nation Podcast VU Hoops

Unfortunately, we had a bout of technical issues on Thursday morning, but we decided to re-record. Of course, once the episode was uploaded, some crazy news comes out. We’ll have to sound off on that next time, or whenever more details come out.

We usually release 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 @SoNNpod.

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

Episode Description: The Villanova Wildcats celebrated their Senior Night with a lopsided win over the DePaul Blue Demons. Mikal Bridges has a standout performance to lead a bunch of ‘Cats in double figures. Tom Leibig hits a stepback J on two defenders, the Bench Mob is celebrated, and Phil Booth returns. He looked solid in his first game back since fracturing his hand, tallying 14 points. The men’s basketball team has three games left, while the women’s team will wrap up the regular season this weekend with two home games and its Senior Day. The Lady ‘Cats prepare for Providence and a tough Creighton team. Alumnus Ryan Arcidiacono has a triple-double for the Windy City Bulls, and we answer your Twitter questions.
