Sports Illustrated covers feature newly crowned NCAA Champions

- The covers of the newest issue of Sports Illustrated feature the newly crowned men’s and women’s 2018 NCAA Champions: Villanova and Notre Dame, respectively.

SI’s Villanova cover features sophomore Donte DiVincenzo after he scored 31 points off the bench in a dominant matchup against Michigan.

The sophomore guard had 12 points and an assist during a first-half run to help the Wildcats (36-4) pull ahead, then scored nine straight for Villanova midway through the second to snuff out the Wolverines. He capped the second shooting skein with a 3-pointer from a step behind the arc. He punctuated it with a knowing wink over to the sideline, where TV announcers Jim Nantz and Bill Raftery were sitting.
