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.

Sophomore guard Achraf Yacoubou has decided to transfer from Villanova, according to several web reports. The 6-foot-4 Yacoubou, the New York state player of the year in 2011, averaged 2.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 31 games for the Wildcats this season. He was fourth on the team with 21 three-point baskets, shooting nearly 40 percent from beyond the arc, and had a season-high 13 points in a win last December over Penn. He saw his playing time decrease toward the end of the season, however, and did not play in three of Villanova's last six games.
