    SAN ANTONIO — Villanova is cutting down the nets for the second time in three years — and they have “The Michael Jordan of Delaware” to thank for it.

    Donte DiVincenzo, the Wilmington, Del., native given that moniker by head coach Jay Wright, came up huge on the biggest stage in college basketball.

    DiVincenzo scored a game- and career-high 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting to go with 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks as Villanova dominated Michigan, 79-62, before 67,831 at the Alamodome to win their second NCAA title in three years. Wright became just the third active Division 1 head coach with two or more rings.

    “There have been so many ups and downs and just being out there and just seeing the confetti fall, and just being able to hug each other and know that we played Villanova basketball tonight,” said DiVincenzo, who was named Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four.”
