Villanova sophomore Donte DiVincenzo will remain in the 2018 NBA Draft and forgo his remaining collegiate eligibility, sources told Yahoo.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) May 29, 2018
The Final Four Most Outstanding Player had strong Combine, has performed well in team workouts.
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!
