It’s episode No. 100! I just realized a few minutes before we recorded the show. Magically a few things lined up, like ‘Nova being undefeated so far in the conference and rolling through Big East play. Also, it’s the last call for our ticket giveaway on Twitter, as we’ll be selecting a winner on Tuesday night at 11:59 ET. We’re giving away two tickets to the Villanova-Xavier game on January 18! Consult this tweet on how to enter for a chance to win:

And now, the show...

Episode Description: Somehow, we made it this far. It’s episode 100! (It technically is, since our 2017 wrap up and post-Wisconsin Badgers 2017 NCAA Tournament episode didn’t transfer over when we switched servers. So although it’ll say 99 episodes, this is actually 100!) The Villanova Wildcats are still riding high and undefeated in Big East play after venturing into Omaha and downing the Creighton Bluejays. Another solid outing from Eric Paschall and Phil Booth, with nice supporting roles from Collin Gillespie and Jermaine Samuels. ‘Nova is welcoming a new restaurant and bar, could this be a pregame spot for Pavilion games? What’s up with Joe Cremo? Where’d Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree’s minutes go? This and so much more, and one last call for our Villanova-Xavier ticket giveaway on Twitter!
