The podcast is also available for free on iTunes/Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, Stitcher and Spotify (a bit later in the day)! You may also listen to the newest episode at the bottom of the post.

Episode Description: The Seton Hall Pirates handed the Villanova Wildcats their third-straight loss. What went wrong? Also, we take a look at a well-represented showing by the Big East in this week’s polls, with five different teams now in the Top 25, and share our reactions to the NCAA’s top four seeds. Now, the Wildcats will try to break the losing stretch with a rubber match with the Marquette Golden Eagles. Can Villanova bounce back with a win? Also, no episode on Thursday, since Chris is going on vacation, so we preview Sunday’s game against the Temple Owls. New rule: No Big 5 slander until Villanova reclaims the crown and sweeps the rest of the Philly schools!
