With the season set to tip off in less than two weeks, here’s five guys who will grab your attention each time you watch them play.


*G Donte DiVincenzo, Villanova

Villanova is a player development hub. DiVincenzo could be the next beneficiary.

That said, he does some things you can’t teach.

DiVincenzo is 6-5, 205 pounds, but he’s a remarkable athlete who players bigger than his listed size. The Wildcats have had crazy amounts of success in recent years, but that’s mainly a result of great coaching, continuity, discipline, shooting and defense. You don’t typically associate Villanova with leap-off-the-screen athleticism.

If DiVincenzo sees a bump in playing time this season, as he should, that is about to change.

We’re not sure what sums up his game more accurately: the first two plays of this clip (an effortless alley-oop dunk and a chasedown block), or the title.
