Maybe so, considering the Wildcats won in seemingly every way imaginable. This victory came two nights after they set a Final Four record with 18 3-pointers, and one week after they relied more on defense in a win over Texas Tech in the Elite Eight.That debate’s for later.DiVincenzo squashed any questions about this game with a 10-for-15 shooting night that was better than that.He opened his game-sealing run with an around-the-back dribble to get to the hoop and get fouled.

He succeeded there, too.
