Nike Celebrates Villanova University’s National Championship Win

Nike congratulates the Villanova University men’s basketball team, led by coach Jay Wright, on its second national championship — and first since 1985.

This year, Nike marks the monumental occasion with an official championship T-shirt and hat, worn on-court by the players as they celebrated the win. Both apparel items are available at
