Well, I just found the 131 clue for Villanova. Donte DiVencenzo, the player who stole the show for Villanova was born on 1/31. He dropped 31 points for Nova in the final, for the man born on the 31st day of the year.
Championship = 131.
There's the 44 I was looking for too. D, the 4th letter. DD = 44. Final on a day with 44 numerology.
It's a little bit harder to find the birthday's for college as it doesn't show up on most of the rosters, but still, I can't believe I didn't notice this until now.
He also has the 98.
Donte DiVincenzo = 98.
This is the 80th NCAA Tournament in history.
Donte DiVincenzo = 80.
He was also named the Most Outstanding Player (MOP).
17 & 44. The two numbers for the date numerology.
Villanova won 79-62, a margin of 17 points.
This also points back to the 17 Victims of the Valentine's Day shooting.
4+2+20+18 = 44
4+2+2+0+1+8 = 17
Also, he is from Delaware.
There was a game on 2/22, in which Delaware blew a 34 point lead to Drexel, the biggest comeback in College Basketball History. I was thinking this would be a clue for the Final with the D vs D, 44 connection. This is also the 34th tournament since the field expanded to 64.
Sixth Man = 108.
Villanova = 108.
