With Michigan refusing to go away early in the second half, he opened his game-sealing run with an around-the-back dribble to get to the hoop and get fouled.
"Everybody said he had a monkey on his back, he couldn't do it", Villanova legend Kris Jenkins said, following the Wildcats' national title win over MI on Monday night.
When he was asked about his tweets Monday after the game, DiVincenzo said, "I didn't do that".
Thousands of Villanova Wildcats fans poured into the streets of suburban Philadelphia after the school beat MI on Monday night to win its second men's national basketball title in the last three years.
A bench player putting up 31 points in the national title game is certainly an accomplishment worth noting, but let's not sell Villanova's Donte DiVincenzo short by calling him a mere substitute who picked the flawless time to have the game of his life.
Matthews, Michigan's second-leading scorer, managed only six points on 3-for-9 shooting and committed five turnovers. "[The Wolverines] did a great job of making it hard for Jalen and Mikal, and they were just making the right play". "I was just trying to be aggressive. And Omari [Spellman] was setting great screens and getting me open".
At the start of the game, Villanova experienced a bit of a slow offensive start, with MI leading 12 to 8. "... So you've gotta do your best to alter his shot and get in his way, but every time we tried to do that he just adjusted".
Starting the second half on the bench, DiVincenzo was subbed in after just 52 seconds.

It was a team unlike any John Beilein had coached at MI. "When I got hurt, Eric got hurt, we had younger guys playing".
DiVincenzo became the first non-starter to win most outstanding player of the Final Four since Luke Hancock in 2013 Louisville, and the first player with a 30-point NCAA championship game since Miles Simon of Arizona in 1997 against Kentucky. "It was an incredible performance".
There may not be a better college basketball coach in the nation right now.
Allowing the Wolverines to make just 43.6 percent of their field-goal attempts and just 3 of 23 tries from 3-point range, the top-seeded Wildcats notched their second title in three years with a 79-62 verdict at the Alamodome in San Antonio. DiVincenzo came off the bench to score 18 points in the half and 31 in the game.
"Listen, that kid, he was on fire", James said Tuesday morning. Their run amounts to the most inspiring multiyear example of an unselfish championship culture and exquisite roster construction the sport has seen since Florida won back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007.
Donte DiVincenzo was last night's sensation, and Twitter reacted appropriately to the Ginger sensation.
Villanova, who was a heavy favorite, won all six of its NCAA tournament games by double digits.
The three-pointer that sealed it came from a big step behind the arc and gave Villanova a 62-44 lead with a bit less than eight minutes left.
"He never takes his foot off the gas", DiVincenzo said of his coach.
