Episode Description: The Villanova Wildcats were dealt another tough bit of news. After undergoing a COVID-related shutdown shortly after the Marquette game, the Wildcats returned for practice on Sunday, only to be back on hiatus less than 24 hours later, after two players tested positive for the coronavirus. Head coach Jay Wright shared some thoughts and insight on the situation, as he manages the team from afar and goes through the final day of his personal quarantine. As a result of the postponement, the Wildcats will miss their next three games and may return in time for their Jan. 15 game against the UConn Huskies. Also, the NCAA announced that the entire men’s college basketball championship tournament will be played entirely in Indiana.
