Episode Description: A nice weekend for the Villanova Wildcats. The men’s basketball team expanded its winning streak, while we were away, with a red-hot shooting performance against the DePaul Blue Demons, and then a solid road win against the Xavier Musketeers. Now, the ‘Cats are prepping for their game with St. John’s. Meanwhile, the women’s basketball team gave Harry Perretta and its seniors a wonderful send off on Senior Day over the weekend, upsetting No. 12-ranked DePaul. Cameron Onken went beast mode with the program’s second-ever triple-double for the Lady ‘Cats. We discuss what some are calling “the death of college basketball,” — a proposal that has reentered the spotlight, after being suggested in October, that would allow players to transfer without having to sit out a redshirt year — traps, cheesesteaks, and more!
