Virginia falls 61-59 to No. 1 Villanova on tip-in at the buzzer - Jan 30, 2017

Donte
DiVincenzo
By the time March arrives, any wounds Virginia absorbed from Sunday's 61-59 buzzer-beating loss to No. 1 Villanova will have healed. Still, as the Wells Fargo Center bursted at the seams with an intensity akin to tournament basketball, this one left the Cavaliers with broken hearts. Villanova's Donte DiVincenzo (6'5''-G-97) attempted just one shot, and all he got on the ball was the palm of his right hand with two-tenths of a second left after national Player of the Year candidate Josh Hart (6'5''-G-95) missed a layup with two seconds remaining. Yet, DiVincenzo's follow after he slipped in near the basket unguarded ended up being the decisive basket in a game No. 12 U.Va. (16-4, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) controlled nearly the entire afternoon. 'So many times that happens,' Bennett said regarding not getting a body on DiVincenzo. 'We talked about trying to make them earn, block out, guys will be flying in there. (DiVincenzo) went flying in on a baseline screen. I think that might've been (U.Va. freshman guard Ty Jerome (6'5''-G)'s) block-out. … I mean, Ty made so many big plays. Again, we were trying to not foul. We talked about that. 'I wish it was two-tenths of a second a little slower, but it wasn't.' Despite playing exemplary defense in the first half to hold Villanova to 18.2 percent shooting from the floor, U.Va. let a 13-point lead slip away in the second half on the way to dropping its 19th consecutive game against a No. 1-ranked opponent. U.Va., which shot 50 percent from the floor for the game, fell to 1-29 all-time against top-ranked foes. The game was played before a crowd of 20,907 fans, the largest audience ever to witness a college basketball game in Philadelphia. Villanova (20-2, 7-2 Big East) got the home crowd on its feet in the second half, bouncing back to make 72.2 percent of its shots (13 of 18) in the final 20 minutes and finish the game shooting 42.5 percent overall. 'This game was just great,' Villanova coach Jay Wright said. 'There was incredible electricity in the building, and you're playing against a good team. You can tell your players all you want, that you might get away with this in this game, but when we play the best teams, we're not. (Villanova's players) were saying it to each other, that we need to keep grinding, and these guys are good.' Jerome came off the bench to lead U.Va. with 15 points, including 3-of-6 shooting from 3-point range, but video showed he did indeed fail to box out DiVincenzo on Villanova's last possession. DiVincenzo's tip-in bounced around the rim before falling through the net as the final horn sounded. 'We played good defense on it, and then just the offensive rebounding part, which is going to hurt when we watch it on film,' said U.Va. guard London Perrantes (6'2''-G), who was just 2-of-11 shooting and finished with four points, six assists and two turnovers. 'Just knowing that we could've gotten some extra minutes (in overtime) and were able to play and maybe pull it out, but I mean, we've just got to learn from it.' A brief video review of DiVincenzo's shot by officials confirmed what everybody in the building already knew. It came off his hand well before the buzzer went off. 'I looked at Josh Hart, and he had his shoulders downhill going to the rim,' said Jerome, who drove into the lane and made a tough short jumper with 15 seconds left to tie the game 59-59. 'I'm thinking there's no way he's passing. He missed and, I don't know, a friendly bounce (off the rim). I've got to go back and box (DiVincenzo) out. I'll look at it and figure it out.' Guard Marial Shayok (6'5''-G-95) added 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting for U.Va., and forward Isaiah Wilkins had 12 points, eight rebounds and two blocks. Despite giving up the big lead, U.Va. had chances down the stretch to pull it out. With the game tied 57-57, Perrantes had an open 3-pointer with 1:49 remaining rim out. Jerome also had a good look from 3-point range with 50 seconds left and the game still tied at 57, but his shot rattled out. 'I thought both were in,' Jerome said of the 3-pointers. Before Jerome's jumper in the lane with 15 seconds left, Villanova's Jalen Brunson (6'2''-PG-96) drove for a layup with 35 seconds left to put the Wildcats ahead 59-57. Brunson and wing Mikal Bridges (6'6''-F/G-96) both scored 15 points to lead Villanova, which needed all the offense it could get from the duo, considering Hart and perimeter-shooting dynamo Kris Jenkins (6'6''-F-93) were off the mark for most of the game. Hart, who finished with 12 points, and Jenkins combined to miss their first 14 shots from the floor. Their struggles were huge reasons Villanova spun its wheels so much in the first half. Villanova made just 4 of 22 field-goal attempts in the opening 20 minutes, while U.Va. connected on 12 of 26 first-half shots to open up a 31-22 halftime lead. Both Hart and Jenkins got hot when Villanova needed them most. U.Va.'s lead grew to 45-32 with 13:46 left when Devon Hall drained a 3-pointer. Trailing 47-37 with less than 11 minutes left, Villanova got some assistance from four U.Va. turnovers in a 3 1/2-minute span. Hart made his first shot from the floor with 7:54 left on a 3-pointer to cut U.Va.'s lead to 49-42. Jenkins, who had eight points, made back-to-back 3-pointers with 7:23 left and 6:54 remaining to trim U.Va.'s advantage to 49-48. Villanova took its first lead since it was up 2-0 when Brunson made a pair of free throws with 5:32 left to put the Wildcats ahead 50-49. Hart dropped in another 3-pointer with 3:59 left to put Villanova up 54-53. The lead changed hands seven times in the final six minutes. 'We try to make everybody shoot a contested shot,' Bennett said. 'I thought we were defending well for the most part early, and then, obviously, they got some looks. Once we broke down a little bit late, they took advantage of it. That's what good players do.' Free throws and ball control kept Villanova in the game early on. Villanova made 13 of 14 free throws in the first half and only turned the ball over twice. U.Va., which turned the ball over just three times in the first half and nine times for the game, had trouble getting to the free-throw line throughout the game. It made all three of its free throws, while Villanova finished 20 of 24. 'That's a big discrepancy,' Bennett said. 'That's hard. I think it was eight to two for a while on the foul count. They were playing aggressive. We were trying to bounce it, but just couldn't get (to the free-throw line) as much as perhaps we needed.'
