Head coach Jay Wright and the Villanova Wildcats were honored yesterday in the East Room of the White House. The team presented President Obama with two Villanova jerseys, one blue and one white with his name on the back and the number 44 on the front. The jersey presented to the President was the same style the team worn back when they played in Pearl Harbor this past season.

President Obama called Jay Wright the George Clooney of college basketball being one of the best-dressed coaches in the game. Senior Daniel Ochefu said he tried to get a selfie with President Obama, but he did not succeed. Congratulations, Villanova Wildcats!
