Episode Description: On the newest State of the Nova Nation, we prepare for the NCAA Tournament opening round showdown with the Saint Mary’s Gaels. The Wildcats have their first shot against the Gaels since 2010, when Saint Mary’s handed Villanova a bitter upset. We preview the Wildcats’ tournament opener, highlight the key players, and get some perspective from Jay Wright, Eric Paschall, and Phil Booth, as well as Collin Gillespie--who shares a tidbit on transitioning into a bigger role and playing on a bigger stage. How will the young ‘Cats and inexperienced players handle the Big Dance? We also take a look into the near future, taking a peek at the prospective matchup in the Purdue Boilermakers-Old Dominion Monarchs matchup.
