If you still think Villanova isn’t a “Philly” school, then you clearly haven’t seen the way these Main Liners party.

It was a scene particularly familiar to Eagles fans as students clad in Wildcats gear flooded the streets of Radnor in the wee hours of Tuesday morning and hung from greased poles on Lancaster Avenue. Metal street signs were ripped from their roots and hoisted high in the sky in honor of the tiny Catholic school’s second men’s basketball national championship in three years.

Safe to say, people were very excited. According to CBS3, Radnor Police Sgt. Joe Pinto said there were two arrests, but no other details were immediately available. Check out scenes from the wild ’Nova Nation celebration below.
