Villanova Head Coach Jay Wright wasn't alone on the sidelines during the team's Final Four run -- a pig was keeping him company.

A pig?

Wright told reporters that he carried a small toy pig at recent Wildcat games. The oinker was a gift from his 10-year-old daughter Riley.

Riley makes sure that her dad is carrying the pig before each game. She has a bunch of pigs herself that she keeps near when the Cats play, Wright said.

The pig is important to Nova's success, said Wright.

The pig will be in Wright's pocket when the Wildcats take on North Carolina in the Final Four. Let's hope that pig still has some magic left.
