If you’re a Villanova-hater and a Jay Wright doubter, you’re probably reveling in the Cats’ loss yesterday to Wisconsin.

But facts are stubborn things. Here’s Villanova’s postseason record under Wright:

  • 2005: Lost in Sweet 16 to North Carolina, eventual National Champion
  • 2006: Lost in Elite 8 to Florida, eventual National Champion
  • 2007: Lost in first round to Kentucky
  • 2008: Lost in Sweet 16 to Kansas, eventual National Champion
  • 2009: Lost in Final Four to North Carolina, eventual National Champion
  • 2010: Lost in second round to St. Mary’s, a game we do not speak of
  • 2011: Lost in first round to George Mason, why God why?
  • 2013: Lost in first round to North Carolina
  • 2014: Lost in second round to UConn, eventual National Champion
  • 2015: Lost in second round to N.C. State
  • 2016: Won National Championship
  • 2017: Lost in second round to Wisconsin
