Bow and arrows and looking through telescopes. Sounds like a party to me. Villanova pulled off another amazing upset last night, this time against 5th ranked Georgetown. Nova became only the third unranked team in the last twenty years to defeat 3 Top 5 ranked opponents in a season. They defeated Louisville (3rd) and Syracuse (5th) earlier this season.
