Villanova hero deletes Twitter account over offensive posts

  • The center of attention wasn’t even a starter for Villanova

The Villanova hero, named Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four, deleted his Twitter account Tuesday morning after a number of the social media site's users pointed out racially insensitive and homophobic remarks posted on DiVincenzo's account. "But I never remember doing that".

The statement was later pulled back because the age of the tweets contradicted the school's version of the events. In fact, the last tweet from the account was dated June 2016.

The Michael Jordan of DE, as his teammates call him, has come a long way from a redshirt freshman season that was frustrating at times, but probably helped set the stage for a bigger role toward Villanova's next national championship.

The Villanova sophomore had a dominant performance in the Wildcats' 79-62 dismantling of MI on Monday in the NCAA tournament title game in San Antonio.

DiVincenzo's scoring total was the most ever in the tournament by a non-starter in a national championship game and the most overall in a title game since Seton Hall's John Morton scored 35 against MI in 1989. He was a sixth starter, ' Villanova coach Jay Wright said. Tonight we needed 31. If we get off to a good start, I try to take that energy to a new level. Just as in previous contests this month, Villanova looked vulnerable in the first half Monday night.

China's Tiangong-1 space lab plummets to Earth, breaks up over Pacific
There is "no need for people to worry", the China Manned Space Engineering Office said earlier on its WeChat social media account. Mr McDowell has also pointed out that if part of the space station lands in your garden "it's not yours, it's still China's".

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman scored 23 points for the Wolverines (33-8) and Moritz Wagner hit for 16, but they didn't have enough help.

In the second half, when MI tried to make a move, DiVincenzo put down the uprising with 11 straight points and a wink toward the sideline at his buddy and former Wildcats star Josh Hart, who is in his rookie season with the Los Angeles Clippers.

MI senior 6-foot-4 guard Muhammed-Ali Abdur-Rahkman played well with a team-high 23 points in defeat Monday night as the Wolverines lost to Villanova 79-62 in the NCAA men's basketball championship game in San Antonio.

"I had so much confidence in that shot that I was standing up before (he) even released it", DiVincenzo said. "And just trying to play off each other and just trying to make sure we're all playing together". "He worked really hard, and he wanted to start". We got into a lot.
