Repeating as NCAA champs is nearly impossible … so does Villanova have a shot? Jay Wright sure thinks so … telling TMZ Sports his squad has handled everything thrown at them all year.
Wright admits there was a “hangover” after winning it all last year … and although he’s stoked about finishing this season 31-3, he says it’s no lock they’ll breeze through the tourney.
“[The NCAA tournament is] a different type of pressure. A different vibe. I think I’m gonna wait ’til our first game to see how we’re handling it. But right now it seems pretty good.”
FYI — in the last 40 years, only 2 teams (Florida and Duke) have won back-to-back championships.
The Wildcats are the top seed in the Big Dance this time around … and Jay says don’t be shocked if they’re cutting down the nets in Arizona on April 3.
