Donte DiVincenzo, a Wilmington, Delaware native and Salesianum graduate, was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four, helping lead No. 1 Villanova over No. 3 Michigan on Monday night in the NCAA Championship Game.
The sophomore led the way for the Wildcats, scoring a game and career high 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting from the field to go along with four three pointers. DiVincenzo’s 31 points were the most points scored in the history of the NCAA Championship Game by player coming off the bench.
DiVincenzo helped send Villanova to the title game last week, scoring 15 points and adding 8 rebounds in a 95-79 win over Kansas in the Final Four.
A 2015 graduate of Salesianum, DiVincenzo led Sallies to their first-ever boys basketball state championship, scoring a game-high 18 points against St. Georges Tech.
