3 Things to Know
Called the “Michael Jordan of Delaware” and “The Big Ragu”
A fearless guard capable of hitting big shots, with great scoring versatility, with potential to be a valuable piece of a rotation as instant offense as he was with Villanova or playing the 3 and D role with his impressive athletic ability and 3 point shooting.
Displayed very good competitiveness and selflessness in Nova’s run to the title, coming off the bench, knowing his role, and propelling his team with savvy play and great shooting.
Very Athletic with a 42 inch max vertical (tied for first at combine)
Streaky, yet extremely capable shooter (40.1 % from 3)
Capable defender, able to defend either guard spot.
Unselfish, team oriented player
Effective shooter as a catch and shoot shooter and off the bounce.
Crashes the boards with regularity.
Good change of direction that makes up for lack of other world speed.
Average length inhibits his versatility defensively, limiting him to solely defending the 1 and the 2.
Sometimes overpowered by larger players and beaten by elite speed off of the dribble
Shooting running off of screens.
For a very solid shooter from 3, he struggles at the free throw line (70.1%).
Willing passer, but sometimes forces and telegraphs passes.
DiVincenzo is a very polished prospect whose collegiate role was minimized by the program’s success, only displaying Divincenzo’s natural scoring prowess on rare occasion, rather than having it be featured had he attended another school with less talent. Donte blends athleticism and feel for the game to be a phenomenally versatile scorer who exudes confidence. Though he lacks extraordinary measurables, he makes up for it with his competitiveness and basketball IQ as demonstrated by his excellent rebounding from the guard position. Divincenzo could stand to improve his free throw shooting which most project due to his success as a three point shooter in college which he has the range to continue to be a weapon from 3 in the NBA as well. His natural athleticism should allow for him to be a solid defender, primarily defending 2 guards at the next level, though he could possibly add some muscle to his frame before defending the likes of bigger 2 guards such as Klay Thompson or Paul George. What may intrigue teams the most is his ability to shoot the ball, defend solidly, and platy selflessly, yet he could surprise teams with his on ball skills, facilitating which were not too frequently showcased at Nova, allowing for untapped potential to pair with an already solid game set to perform at the next level. In conclusion, Donte presents a rare combination of shooting ability and athleticism (highest max vertical in combine of 42 inches) as his main pitch to teams, but due to a stacked Nova team, he could showcase advanced scoring ability as he did in the championship role with more featuring or inhabit a supplementary role, which he’d be familiar with and play beautifully with his spot-up shooting and NBA level athleticism.
Locke’s take: Played with a really solid team in a terrific system that took advantage of his skills. He moves well without out the ball and understands how to get himself open. An elite athlete. Has an off the bounce game that is better than most college players. Needs to shoot it better in the NBA to be the player people think he will be and his free throw shooting numbers are troublesome. A litttle concerned that he was the 124th best prospect out of high school. That is not a road many guys follow to NBA success. With Jarel Brunson on his team he didn’t need to play a lot of point guard. Passing skills will need to improve a great deal if he is going to play with the ball in his hands. Not a good isolation player.
JAZZ GAME REWIND: 2nd Half propels Toronto past the youthful Jazz
The Jazz fell short in the second half as the Toronto defense shut the new-look Jazz down in route to cruising to an 114 – 82 Raptors victory. Lauri Markkanen shined for the Jazz with 20 points and 5 rebounds but the Raptors length and athleticism proved to be too much for the Jazz riding a dominant 3rd quarter to pull away from the Jazz who played well in the first half, only trailing by one.
