Shane Clark gave the Sals a lead at halftime by hitting a baseline jumper just before the buzzer, which sparked what became an extended 8-0 run as St. Elizabeth's defense helped keep the Vikings in the game.
Brian O'Neill's 13 points helped earn Salesianum a 31-20 advantage after three quarters before DiVincenzo went to work.
The Villanova commit scored four baskets in the final eight minutes, including a 2-handed slam as the Sals finally put the game away.
He finished with 19 points despite going just 4-of-10 at the line.
