Winning a second national title opens a lot of doors. For Villanova coach Jay Wright, that includes at the Vatican.
Fresh off leading the Wildcats to their second title in three years, Wright was with a delegation from Villanova that had an audience with Pope Francis in Rome.
Wright presented Pope Francis with a Villanova basketball signed by members of the Villanova team.
Wright might be without Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges next season, but he may have the Pope in his corner.
