And now, the show...

Episode Description: We’re back for the first episode of 2019! After a holiday hiatus, the State of the Nova Nation is back. While the podcast was on break, the Villanova Wildcats have been back on their winning ways. The Wildcats have won three-straight, beating the UConn Huskies, DePaul Blue Demons, and the Providence Friars. We’re looking at the good, the bad, and things to address moving forward with this squad. The defending National and Big East Champions are currently atop the conference, but Prime Time Ponds and the St. John’s Red Storm are looking to threaten the ‘Cats. It’s the top scoring defense in the Big East vs. the conference’s top-scoring trendy St. John’s offense. We also have a few special announcements: we’re giving away two tickets to the Jan. 18 Villanova-Xavier game at the Wells Fargo Center, and we’re looking to see if there’s any interest for a free pick’em contest!
