Louisville defeats Michigan to win NCAA Tournament

In an entertaining title game, the Louisville Cardinals proved once and for all why they were the top seeded team in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, defeating the Michigan Wolverines 82-76 on Monday night in Atlanta.

Led by unheralded reserve guard Spike Albrecht, who scored all of his 17 points in the first half, the Wolverines took as much as a 12 point lead before Louisville rallied to make it a one-point game at the break.

The Cardinals then began to control the tempo in the second half, slowly pulling away.  Luke Hancock scored 22 points, leading Louisville, he was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

Louisville's Rick Pitino becomes the first coach to lead two different schools to national titles.  He won the 1996 championship at Kentucky.
