Episode Description: The Villanova Wildcats got their revenge win over the Creighton Bluejays on Wednesday night. It was a Senior Night victory, one that secured the No. 1 seed at the Big East Tournament and another regular season conference title, but it came at a steep price. Senior point guard Collin Gillespie sustained a serious knee injury and is due for a MRI on Thursday morning. After the ‘Nova co-captain went down, the rest of the ‘Cats stepped up in his place and pulled off the double-digit victory. We take a look back at the win over Creighton, preview the upcoming season finale with the Providence Friars, and process what the recent injury means.
