One of the many things coming Villanova’s way now is a visit to the White House. But before all that, President Obama placed a call to Jay Wright to congratulate him and – we presume in edited out portions – ask fashion advice:
Obama: “It was a great game because it wasn’t like North Carolina gave it away.”
Obama: “They had big shots and you guys came right back. But your team showed grit and [are a] really high character team.”
Wright: “I appreciate that.”
Obama: “So it was a pleasure to watch and congratulate all of ’em, and tell Jenkins that he looked pretty cool out there takin’ that shot … I’m looking forward to welcoming you guys to the White House.”
Wright: “Thanks for calling.”
Obama: “Congratulations coach.”
