Villanova basketball: President Obama calls to congratulate coach Jay Wright
It's no secret that our Commander-In-Chief is a fan of basketball. President Barack Obama has filled out an NCAA tournament bracket in each of his eight years in office, and pictures of him shooting hoops with members of the U.S. Congress have been circulated.
So, he'd surely want to witness the tournament final, which turned out to be one of the greatest in history. As custom dictates, he will welcome the entire Wildcat basketball team to the White House to congratulate the national champions.
But, after that incredible game, Obama just couldn't wait to extend his congratulations.
On Wednesday afternoon, Wildcats coach Jay Wright received a phone call from the President, and the two men discussed the excitement of the national championship game, the perseverance of Wright's team and, of course, how cool Kris Jenkins looked releasing the buzzer-beating game winner.

Undoubtedly, Nova nation will be cheering once again seeing "Obama 44" emblazoned on the back of a Wildcat jersey.
