Villanova rips Michigan for second title in three seasons

DiVincenzo

Shortly after the conclusion of last night's championship game, tweets dating back to 2011, when DiVincenzo was just 14 years old, began to surface including a post from August 2011, which references a lyric from Meek Mill's "Derrick Rose." .

The Delaware native did confirm that the account was his, but he did not 'remember doing that'.

Because the internet never forgets, and every pinheaded post from your past has a way of popping up years after the fact, DiVincenzo was burned Monday for a few tweets he posted when he was in high school.

The school has since withdrawn that statement since a recent hacking would not explain why such a tweet would exist from 2011.

Until the Twitter revelation - and maybe in spite of it - DiVincenzo has been Villanova's unquestioned hero off the bench.

Here are a few more of our favorites from the national championship game.

DiVincenzo was the breakout star of the NCAA Tournament title game Monday night, scoring a career-high 31 points against MI in a 79-62 victory that gave the Wildcats two titles in three seasons. He was a sixth starter, ' Villanova coach Jay Wright said.

Pruitt's Security Team Broke Down Condo Door Last Year
The company is lobbying to scale back Obama-era EPA rules limiting greenhouse-gas emissions from existing power plants. The EPA had to pay for the damage to the condo's glass-paneled doors, though it's unclear how much it cost.

Hield would finish the game with just nine points on 4-of-12 shooting, and Villanova would go on to win the second national title in program history two days later. Tonight we needed 31.

A bench player putting up 31 points in the national title game is certainly an accomplishment worth noting, but let's not sell Villanova's Donte DiVincenzo short by calling him a mere substitute who picked the flawless time to have the game of his life. I didn't think we'd need him to do that but he has done it, so we'll take it'. Against Michigan, he flashed that entire skillset, accounting for 16 of his team's first 30 points, then scoring 11 straight for the Wildcats during a remarkable second-half stretch.

"I had so much confidence in that shot that I was standing up before (he) even released it", DiVincenzo said.

No. 3 MI tried to fight back, but DiVencenzo kept hitting shot-after-shot to keep the Wildcats on top.

'Honestly, when I got into the game, all I was trying to do was play hard, ' DiVincenzo said.

"But we spent a lot of time talking with him".
