Villanova earned its second national championship in three years, and Donte DiVincenzo was a major reason why.

The sophomore scored a career-high 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting in Monday's final against Michigan, helping his team close out a 79-62 win at the Alamodome in San Antonio. He also added five rebounds and two blocks on his way to winning the Most Outstanding Player award.

DiVincenzo came off the bench as he has for most of the season, although the performance was far from a fluke. He ranked third on the team with an average of 13.0 points per game, also ranking second on the Wildcats in assists (3.5) and steals (1.1).

However, he had his coming-out party on the biggest stage of the sport and is suddenly a household name behind one of the best finals performances of all time.
