Divincenzo scored 31 points in Villanova’s win over Michigan, and his remarkable performance resulted in him having to explain some old embarrassing tweets he sent. NBA teams probably are not concerned about the tweets since they were sent when Divincenzo was a teenager.
Divincenzo showed during the NCAA Tournament that he is capable of hitting outside jump shots and finishing at the rim. He also played solid defensively. Those are the types of traits that should make him an appealing prospect to NBA teams.
