Jay Wright ’83 during his Bucknell playing days.

Congratulations go out to Bucknell University graduate Jay Wright ’83, the head men’s basketball coach at Villanova University, which won its second national championship in program history last night with a 77-74 win over North Carolina. In what will no doubt go down in history as one of the most thrilling finishes to an NCAA championship game, Villanova hit a game-winning three-point shot with no time left on the clock, the first buzzer-beater in a title contest since 1983.

Wright has a bachelor’s degree in economics and sociology from Bucknell and was a three-year basketball letterwinner.
