Allan Ray Locker NamePlate
This locker name plate is an authentic Villanova issues nameplate.
Ray was recruited out of that year's NY State Champions, St Raymond High School by head coach Jay Wright. He committed to the Wildcats in 2001, along with three other players that made up a highly praised recruiting class. Ray was part of a class proclaimed as the players to lead the Wildcats back to a championship.
Ray's career at Villanova was slightly hampered by injuries, but nothing that kept him from scoring 2,000 points as a Wildcat. His freshman season, he was a key contributor. He had 16 points in his Wildcat debut against Marquette on November 15, 2002. As a sophomore, he averaged a team-leading 17.3 points per game.
In his junior season, Ray was named second team all-Big East and led the Wildcats in scoring with 16.2 ppg. That year, he also led Villanova to the Sweet 16 of the 2005 NCAA Tournament where they lost to eventual national champion UNC by one point.
His senior year was arguably Ray's best season as a college player when he averaged 18.5 ppg. Villanova tied for the Big East regular-season championship with UConn and split their two games with the Huskies. Their final Big East regular-season record was 14-2. Overall, their record was 28-5. In 2006, Ray was named to the Big East first team, along with teammate Randy Foye. Ray led Villanova to the Elite Eight of the 2006 NCAAS Tournament, playing in a four-guard offense with Foye, Kyle Lowry and Mike Nardi.
