In a return to his decadent three-piece look for the third time in five games, Wright donned a navy suit highlighted by lavender stripes; a suit that has only been worn twice before; most recently in the NCAA Tournament against Lafayette. Underneath, he wore a light pink shirt and solid pink tie.
He finished the look off with a fuchsia pocket square and an unidentifiable lapel pin
