College basketball legends congratulate Villanova's Jay Wright on his 500th career win

February 11, 2017

College basketball is filled with legendary coaches - Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim, Roy Williams, Rick Pitino. But another coach is starting to put his name in the conversation with them: Villanova's Jay Wright. On Saturday, Wright added another milestone to his resume when he picked up his 500th career win in No. 2 Villanova's 73-57 victory over No. 23 Xavier on FOX.

Following the win, FOX Sports shared a special tribute to Wright on Twitter, as some of college basketball's biggest names shared their finest memories and wished Coach Wright congratulations.

Obviously, the past year has been a memorable one for Wright, as he advanced to the second Final Four of his head-coaching career and led Villanova to its first national championship since 1985. Now he can add 500 wins to a growing list of credentials.

Villanova will look to pick up win No. 501 of the Jay Wright era on Tuesday when it visits DePaul.
