Villanova guard Donte Divincenzo dunks the ball against Michigan during the championship game of the 2018 NCAA tournament.
The veteran team didn't panic and then DiVincenzo asserted himself and became the star of the night, helping Jay Wright to a second title and elevate the coach to among the elites in the sport.
Michigan guard Charles Matthews has his shot blocked by Villanova forward Eric Paschall during the first half of the national championship game of the 2018 NCAA tournament.
His long trey was part of a 9-2 run that Nova ahead and then another bomb made the advantage 28-24 with under five minutes remaining.
The Wolverines were the underdog, but they're playing with tremendous confidence, attacking the Villanova defense with drives and getting to the basket for some easy buckets.
But a strong rally in the final 10 minutes led by Moritz Wagner put them in the title game again after an appearance in 2013 against Louisville.
