Donte DiVincenzo to remain in the 2018 NBA Draft pool

Farewell, DiVincenzo.

NCAA Basketball: Final Four Championship Game-Michigan vs Villanova Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Donte DiVincenzo will not play another game for the Villanova Wildcats. The 2018 Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player is headed into the 2018 NBA Draft, as reported by Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania.

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise after the Combine and workout process, as Shams’ tweet indicates. He delivered and excelled, wowing NBA scouts as there stands a solid chance that he is picked in the late 1st round or early 2nd. From that perspective, it’s pretty much a no brainer for The Michael Jordan of Delaware™ to move on to the Association.

DiVincenzo averaged 10.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in his career at ‘Nova, with marks of 13.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game this past season. DiVincenzo shot 40.1 percent from 3-point land during the course of the season and was obviously exceptional in the NCAA Tournament. He put up 31 points in the title victory over the Michigan Wolverines.

Villanova will be tasked with replacing a lot this season, as DiVincenzo along with Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges are heading to the NBA. Omari Spellman might also be headed to the pros as well, as his decision looms too.

Best of luck to Donte in the NBA Draft and in his pro career!
