Episode Description: It wasn’t pretty, and it needed overtime, but the Villanova Wildcats were able to survive the relentless Seton Hall Pirates at the Prudential Center on Wednesday. Defense, Mikal Bridges, and a Jalen Brunson--that finally showed up for the final nine minutes of action--saved the day. Now the ‘Cats will prepare for one last regular season game before beginning post-season play. Meanwhile, the women’s basketball team is ready to tip-off the Big East Tournament in Chicago, but first--there were some awards. Mary Gedaka wins the Sixth Woman of the Year award, while she and Alex Louin also got some All-Big East honors. Harry Perretta shared the Big East Coach of the Year award. We preview the women’s Big East Tournament and answer your questions.
