​You wanted a back-and-forth battle in the National Championship game? Well, thus far Michigan and Villanova have delivered. 


And while the Wildcats aren't matching their ​historic shooting from the semifinal gameDonte DiVincenzo has been downright sensational. 


Scoring 18 off 7-of-10, the 6-5 sophomore has led Nova to a 37-28 lead over the Wolverines at the halftime break. 

For DiVincenzo, he's truly been lights out. 


Of his seven field goals made, three have come from downtown. This of course includes this NBA-range triple, which was a no-doubter. 

For Michigan, they were in front for the majority of the half, but a late run by Nova gave them the lead at the break. As expected, the pride of Berlin, Moritz Wagner, has fueled the UM offense, leading the team with 11 points. 


Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman also had a strong showing, adding 10 points. 


In the second half, Michigan will need to continue its defensive intensity, while also doing their best to try and contain DiVincenzo. It won't be easy, but will be necessary if the Wolverines want to shock the world and capture the title. 


For the Wildcats, they're 20 minutes away from their second NCAA crown in three years.
