DiVincenzo quickly took charge in the fourth quarter, scoring the first seven points of a 12-0 scoring run with two layups and a 3-pointer. He later scored another triple, extending the lead to 92-80 with 8:56 remaining in the game.

“I’m simply attempting to make the correct decision.” “Be assertive,” DiVincenzo emphasized during his postgame press conference. “I was able to capitalize on the space they were giving me at the rim.”
