Episode Description: The season finale of State of the Nova Nation ends on a high note. Recorded just hours after Villanova won its second national championship in three years, and hours before having to catch a flight, the Wildcats got their happily ever after. There were two heroes from this past weekend, and neither of them got to play during the 2016 title run, but Donte DiVincenzo and Eric Paschall stepped into the forefront and came up big for the ‘Cats. ‘Nova enjoyed a record-breaking performance against the Kansas Jayhawks and then a dominating display by DiVincenzo in the title game against the Michigan Wolverines. It’s time the Wildcats got some nation-wide respect.
