Manhattan coach Steve Lappas was not about to wait by the phone for Villanova to contact him. He has taken the initiative and applied for the head coaching position there. Lappas, who served as an assistant under Rollie Massimino from 1984-88, is credited with turning the once-struggling Manhattan program into a contender in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. This season, Lappas coached the Jaspers to the finals of the MAAC Tournament, where they lost to La Salle, and then to the quarterfinals of the NIT. Manhattan finished the season 25-9.

Ricky Wright's last official visit was to Villanova. Before he came to the Main Line, a lot of the recruiting gurus thought he was leaning toward Michigan. But Wright, a power forward from East Chicago, Ind., liked Villanova's size, or rather the lack of it. So, yesterday, Wright, one of the nation's top 100 seniors, signed his letter of intent to attend Villanova next fall. The Wildcats get a power forward and they're also getting a student. "I just didn't want to go to a school with big classes," Wright said.

OK, SO HOW many bracketologists figured Villanova would be in the NCAA mix when it was picked to finish 12th in a 15-team Big East? How about after the Wildcats lost four of five in late November/early December, which included an 18-pointer to Columbia on the Main Line? Or maybe when they started 2-3 in the conference. Or even when they got beat by Providence - for the second time. And don't forget that inexplicable late meltdown at Seton Hall, whose other conference wins were against just-as-dreadful South Florida and DePaul (by one)
