Donte DiVincenzoDeletes TweetsAfter N-Word Post Surfaces

Villanova star Donte DiVincenzo had a busy night -- after he led the Wildcats to an NCAA title, he deleted thousands of old tweets ... including one that featured the n-word.
As DiVincenzo heated up during the game, people started combing through the 21-year-old's social media history ... and found a tweet from 2011 that read, "Ballin on these n**gas like I'm derrick rose!"
The line is actually a lyric from a Meek Mill track that came out a week before the tweet -- but the Internet freaked out anyway.
There were more questionable tweets that also surfaced.
After the game, Donte confirmed the Twitter account was his, but said he didn't remember ever posting the n-word tweet.
"It’s my account, yes ... but I never remember doing that.”
Villanova reportedly put out a statement saying Donte's account had been hacked, but later took back the statement.
All of the tweets on the account have since been deleted.
