Episode Description: The Villanova Wildcats got an early Christmas present, as they were able to hang on for a one-point upset victory over the visiting Kansas Jayhawks. It was a back-and-forth game, and while ‘Nova was able to hit the big shots in crucial moments, its defensive effort is what stole the show. The ‘Cats had their best showing on that end of the court so far this season. Is this a sign that things are going to turn the corner? We also take a look ahead to next week’s Big East opener with the Xavier Musketeers and preview the first conference game of the season. We also discuss the new uniforms, Maddy Siegrist’s new record, Coach of the Decade, and more!
