Jay Wright: Absolutely the Best Coach In College Basketball

Nova's Donte DiVincenzo deletes Twitter account containing offensive tweets

Nova's Donte DiVincenzo deletes Twitter account containing offensive tweets

ESPN draft scribe Jonathan Givony rated him as only the 63rd-best prospect in this year's potential class before the NCAA tournament, and another year with the Wildcats - this time as a starter - could be even more beneficial to his credentials than his massive game against MI. Here's what that looked like for the Wolverines and their fans. With its Elite Eight victory against Texas Tech, Nova set the record for most Ws in a four-year period (135) by any men's program and over the course of this dominant season they'd hit more three-pointers than any team, ever. While the Wildcats don't have any seniors on this year's roster, they will likely lose junior stars Mikal Bridges and Jalen Brunson to the National Basketball Association (and Most Outstanding Player Donte DiVincenzo might test the draft waters following his 31 points Monday night) - but they have several key players returning and a strong recruiting class coming in, including one of the D.C. area's top high school stars.

As pointed out by Sports Media Watch, the Villanova-Michigan final was barely even the highest-rated game of this year's NCAA tournament, just edging out the 10.1 rating CBS drew for Kansas' 85-81 overtime win over Duke in the Midwest Regional final.

He ended the night 10-of-15 shooting from the field and 5 of 7 on three-pointers to win the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player. It was an anti-climactic ending to a dramatic tournament that gave us the first No. 1 seed losing to a No. 16 seed and the fourth No. 11 to reach the Final Four.

It's only a matter of time before DiVincenzo and Villanova send out a well-crafted statement to apologize and emphasize that he was a high school student when he sent his offensive tweets into the world. He scored nine points in the first four minutes ... and just seven points after that.

Initially, though, the Wildcats started cold Monday night, and the Wolverines grabbed a 21-14 lead. "We had five out there who weren't making them, but our sixth man could".

"That would be nice", he said. "When I got hurt, Eric got hurt, we had younger guys playing".

Two titles in three years is something only the bluebloods dream about, typically.

There was more joy, on Monday night, for Villanova.

They "talk about it every day", Wright said. "I'll tell you honestly, I do not count myself in that category". MI may not have matched any of these teams' best qualities-but they didn't lack a high level of any one of them, either.

"Collin (Gillespie) wanted to throw the ball up in the air", redshirt sophomore Donte DiVincenzo said.

DiVincenzo has now deleted his Twitter account.

The Delaware native was 14 years old at the time of the posts. Duncan Robinson spoke softer than usual, answering questions about the end of his college career.

"Absolutely, he would not miss this", DiVincenzo said afterward, confident that bedtime got pushed back.

He didn't cool in the second half.

Wright shared a moment with guard Jalen Brunson in the second half.

"I didn't know how many points I had".

MI needed to chase the Wildcats off the 3-point line to prevent another parade of 3s and managed to do that early while establishing Wagner, Villanova's biggest matchup problem.
