Michigan Sophomore guard Donte DiVincenzo scored 31 points as the Villanova Wildcats defeated the Michigan Wolverines 79-62 in the 2018 NCAA Division I men’s basketball championship game played at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Named the Most Outstanding Player for the Final Four, DiVincenzo’s 31 points were the most in a championship game since 1989. “Even if we had played our best, it would have been very difficult to win with what DiVincenzo did,” Michigan coach John Beilein said.
With the victory, Villanova Coach Jay Wright joined an exclusive list of coaches who have won multiple national championships. Villanova junior guard Mikal Bridges scored 19 points and National Player of the Year, Jalen Brunson, added nine. For Michigan, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman led the way with 23 points, while Junior forward Moritz Wagner scored 16 points.
The Wildcats became just the fourth team since 1975 to win two national titles in a three-year span. “I don’t think these kids will think we dominated the tournament,” said Jay Wright. “They’ll just think, we played Villanova basketball.”
