Episode description: For the first time in eight months, college basketball is back! Wednesday marks opening day for the 2020-21 season. The Villanova Wildcats open up things with the Boston College Eagles, a rematch of the 2006 Sweet 16. Afterwards, the Wildcats will take on the Arizona State Sun Devils or the Rhode Island Rams. The Baylor Bears had to drop out of the tournament due to their head coach testing positive for COVID-19, leading to the Rams to take their place. We preview and take another look at the teams that will be competing alongside ‘Nova at the 2K Empire Classic. Back at Villanova, the school announced that it will be limiting its fan attendance policy even further, only allowing families of players to attend home games. Also, the One Bite Pizza Review for Campus Corner came out.
