S.F. City Attorney, who limits news announcements to actual news except when it involves his alma mater and basketball, cheers dominant win over Michigan
SAN FRANCISCO (April 2, 2018) — City Attorney Dennis Herrera was an elated member of Nova Nation tonight as the Villanova men’s basketball team won the NCAA championship.
The 79-62 victory over the Michigan Wolverines, the hottest team in the country, marked the third basketball championship in Villanova history. The others were in 1985 and 2016.
Herrera, a Villanova alumnus who earned his bachelor’s degree in political science and government in 1984, credited his alma mater’s victory to their defensive tenacity, teamwork and the exceptional play of sixth man Donte DiVincenzo.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our Wildcats tonight,” Herrera said after the game. “These guys played their tails off and showed what being a team is all about. I tip my hat to Michigan. They had an incredible tournament. But there was no denying the Wildcats tonight. They did Nova Nation proud! It think it’s about time the sports pundits rethink their list of college basketball blue bloods. Villanova showed why they are champions. They’ll be back.”
