The Villanova Wildcats trailed for much of the game, but a late surge made this one a back and forth affair with the Virginia Cavaliers with both teams trading big buckets down the stretch.
On the final play, Jay Wright called National Player of the Year candidate Josh Hart’s number, but (RS) freshman Donte DiVincenzo made an incredible tip-in to win the game for hte Wildcats.
Enjoy this one over and over.

The win pushes Villanova’s record to 20-2 on the season and gives them a huge resume win as they chase a 1-seed for the NCAA Tournament. The loss for Virginia makes them 16-4, but they’re still right in the thick of it for a third straight ACC title.
