Episode Description: Villanova Wildcats head coach Jay Wright picked up his 600th win on Wednesday night against the Butler Bulldogs. Villanova tempered the flames from a hot Butler start, took the lead, and eventually pulled away late to win 85-66 in the Wildcats’ home opener. Before and after the game, Wright was pretty low-key about his milestone achievement and his players were taken by surprise. Also, there’s a funny story about Fr. Peter in there as well. Now, the Wildcats are searching for a replacement game since they are unable to play against the Virginia Cavaliers. We get an update on how that search is going, and toss a few ideas. We also have a wide-ranging mailbag of questions.
