Last night, Villanova defeated Michigan in the College Basketball National Championship.

In case you missed it, the game was electrifying and a legend was born in the process.

The beginning of the game looked like everyone slept on Michigan all tournament and they were going to give Nova a fight till the end, but then Donte DiVincenzo got hot.

Michigan was up 21-14 when Nova went on a 23-7 run to close out the first half. DiVincenzo poured in 12 points of his own during the run which sparked the Wildcats to take a 37-28 halftime lead.

DiVincenzo finished with 31 points, the most points scored by a single player in a championship game since 1989.

Check out his highlights below.

From clutch three pointers to momentum changing blocks, he took over and led his team to their second championship in three years.

Congratulations to the Villanova Wildcats, now on to the NBA Draft.
