Why Is Donte DiVincenzo Nicknamed The Big Ragu?

Donte DiVincenzo is living his best life. The sophomore guard came off of the bench Monday night to help lead the Villanova Wildcats to a national championship in the final game of the 2018 NCAA Tournament over the Michigan Wolverines. It was the second title in three years for the Wildcats.

DiVincenzo finished the game with 31 points, five rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

But there is also something unique about DiVincenzo: his nickname is “The Big Ragu.”

Now, you may be asking yourself how he got such a bizarre nickname, but we have the answers. The nickname came from announcer Gus Johnson and DiVincenzo gave his thoughts on how the name came about.

From TribLive.com:

Dubbed “The Big Ragu” by Fox broadcaster Gus Johnson — “I’m assuming because I’m an Italian with red hair,” he said.

Not only does DiVincenzo have game and an awesome nickname, he has a great sense of humor. This guy is going to go far after his breakout performance.

Villanova topped the Wolverines at the Alamodome in San Antonio on Monday night, 79-62.
