NFL players react to Villanova, Notre Dame title wins

Another championship trophy is coming back to Philly.

Villanova men's basketball clinched its second national championship in three years following their 79-62 victory over Michigan on Monday -- just two months after the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII.

Donte DiVincenzo scored a career-high 31 points, which caused some current and former NFL players to praise the sophomore star on social media.

Notre Dame earned its second title in women's hoops following the 61-58 comeback victory.
