Donte DiVincenzo was the breakout star of the national championship game on Monday night as the Villanova Wildcats claimed their second NCAA Tournament title in three years. As it turns out, the sophomore guard is doing pretty well off of the court, too.
Meet Morgan Calantoni.
Calantoni, who is a cheerleader at Temple University, is the girlfriend of the Villanova star. Calantoni is currently a junior at Temple University and is majoring in Early Childhood education.
Throughout the tournament, Calantoni has been sharing live videos of DiVincenzo and Villanova’s run. She has also been very supportive of the 21-year-old star.
Calantoni is also 21 years old.
For his part in Villanova’s championship run, DiVincenzo earned the Most Outstanding Player award for the Final Four. In the national championship game, the 6-foot-5 sophomore recorded an incredible 31 points, five rebounds, three assists and two blocks.
He also had an impressive performance in the 2017 tournament despite playing just two games:
