Early in the second, after he was whistled for an offensive foul on Villanova's Omani Spellman, the two exchanged words and a double technical was called.
After the Wolverines started the game 8 for 12, Villanova (36-4) held Michigan to 3-for-16 shooting for the final 11 minutes of the half as the Wildcats dug out from an early 21-14 deficit to lead 37-28 by the break.
That included a stretch of seven straight misses, followed by the Wolverines missing their last six shots of the half - one of those being Di Vincenzo's soaring-in block of Simpson.'Blocked shots, definitely,' Di Vincenzo said when asked if he enjoys 3s or rejections more.
'I pride myself on defense and just bringing energy to the team.' That bought time for the Wildcats offense to figure things out and get moving after a bumpy start, even if they came nowhere near duplicating that Final Four-record 18 3-pointers against Kansas from Saturday's national semifinals. The Wildcats finished with a 38-27 edge on the glass for the game, many of those coming to secure each defensive stop as they took over in those game-turning minutes before halftime.
The Wildcats had already proven earlier this tournament they weren't just one of college basketball's best offensive teams in recent memory.
