You often hear winning coaches offer public praise, or at the very least respectable credit to the team that they’ve beaten.

Villanova head coach Jay Wright has been doing it with opposing Big East coaches for four out of the last five years. He did it again on Saturday night after his team defeated Seton Hall for its third consecutive Big East championship.

Wright’s praise for Seton Hall included a thorough memory of their major wins and almost comebacks this season, and calling head coach Kevin Willard one of the best in the country.

Wright went on to say that their loss to Seton Hall in the 2016 Big East Championship helped his team prepare for what would be their national title run that season. He also credited Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard for his x’s and o’s, praising how he utilized Myles Powell with his sets this season.

Great respect coming from Jay Wright as both teams now prepare for the NCAA Tournament. Villanova has been selected as a no. 6 seed while Seton Hall is a no. 10 seed. Marquette and St. John’s were also selected from the Big East, which will also have five teams competing in the NIT bracket.
