Episode Description: Emma and Pat break down Villanova’s ugly road loss to the newly-crowned No. 1 team in the country, Baylor. The duo focus on Nova’s abysmal offensive play, Baylor’s stifling defense and James Akinjo’s impressive performance. Lastly, they discuss the one positive from the game: Villanova’s defense limited Baylor to just 57 points, adding another impressive notch to the team’s improving defensive play. Then, Emma and Pat are joined by Chris and Rob from The Full 40 podcast to do a comprehensive preview of Big East play.
