2009 Villanova Squad Named "Pride of Philly"

finalfourThe 2008-09 Villanova Men's Basketball team that made it to the NCAA's Final Four will be honored by the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame with their "Pride of Philly" Award.

The honor is given "annually to deserving teams or individuals who exemplify the spirit and pride of Philadelphia sports. The award is not necessarily a 'team or player of the year', but a recognition of accomplishment by those who made Philadelphia sports fans proud of their town and its rich sports heritage."

Jay Wright noted...

We take pride in representing Philadelphia Basketball and its great tradition every time we play outside the city. To be recognized for making Philadelphia proud is thrilling for everyone in our basketball family.

The Induction ceremony will be on November 12th.
