Episode Description: With the overtime win over the Creighton Bluejays, the Villanova Wildcats have improved to 10-0 in Big East play--the best start in program history in conference play. It was also the first time a Big East team had achieved the mark since realignment, and the first time that a Big East team had done it since 1999. It was another tough shooting performance for the ‘Cats, but they were able to gut it out, force overtime, and take over. Does the recent lackluster shooting create cause for concern going into the biggest Big East game of the season? We preview Marquette, who the Wildcats were able to get an extra insurance win to protect their lead over the second place Golden Eagles.
