No you to our "Gma" cover story, the star of last night's championship game, one of them, vianova's Jalen Brunson is joining us now live from San Antonio. Hey there, Jalen. How are you? Congratulations. Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. Okay. I assume you didn't get a whole lot of sleep but this is your second tight until three years. Some people are saying it's a dynasty. Which was sweeter for you? I really don't know which is sweeter. This has been a great experience for me. Being the leader this time around but they're both equally special. I'm so thankful I've had this opportunity. So you are one of the few teams in NCAA history to beat all of your opponents in the tournament by double digits. You annihilated everybody. How do you make it look so easy? It's just been us just trying to be the best by the end of the year. We've been frying so hard to focus on defense and rebounding and on the core values and then we were all focused about the team and not really worried about individual success or anything like that it's just crazy how things can turn out. Speak of individual success. I know Cecilia will want to ask you about big ragu but I got to ask you, you are the reigning college national player of the year but you were sitting out a large portion of the second half because you were in foul trouble. There you see your teammate. You're on the bench and see Donte Divincenzo, aka, the big ragu having the game of his life and you're okay with that. You're okay not always being the star. Oh, yeah, I'm okay with that. I love, you know, just for my teammates to keep doing well and I'm all for the team. I'm not really worried about anything individually. I mean with Donte's performance, it's something we're not surprised and know he's capable of that and glad he's on our team. Tell us about this nickname the big ragu. Is he ever going to shake this? Is this what you really call him in the locker room? We call him that? Us to get on his nerves sometimes I mean. He's the Michael Jordan of Delaware. He has so many different nicknames but try to call him Donte every once in a while. Philadelphia is having a pretty amazing year. I bet you can't wait to get back. Yeah, I mean I just can't wait to get back on campus. We know nova nation our communitymeans so much for us and for them to travel all the way down here means a lot. Back to campus and I know everyone is excited and we're really proud. So now that the season is finally over, results as expected or as you wished for, what will you do to relax, slash, celebrate? Literally just it, relax and celebrate. Just try to as much as possible. It's been such a long year. We'll let you go but yes or no. Are you guys a dynasty? Is Villanova a dynasty? I mean I believe so. I mean, of course, the program is so great and brings in the right kids to fit in this culture and so thankful I'm a part of it and really blessed and honor. You're a big part of it. Jalen Brunson, congratulations to you and to the city of Philadelphia. Thank you so much.
