NCAA championship 2013: Louisville vs Michigan…Louisville wins!
The Louisville Cardinals beat the Michigan Wolverines, 82-76, to win the NCAA Division I men’s basketball championship Monday night at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
The game will surely go down in history as one of the most exciting NCAA championship of all time. The game had sick dunks, crazy passes and 3-pointers from around half-court. Michigan’s backup point guard, Spike Albrecht, stole the show early-on, coming off the bench and draining four 3-pointers from way, way back. Albrecht’s career-high before Monday’s game was seven points, averaging just 1.8 points per game. He scored 17 points last night.
Louisville came back big on the shoulders of Luke Hancock, who went 4-for-4 from beyond the arc to bring the Cardinals back before halftime. In the second half, the Cardinals proved to be too strong for the Wolverines and were able to outlast the team from Michigan. All-American guard, and Naismith award winner, Trey Burke had a good game, but came up short in the end.
Hancock dropped 22 points, while Peyton Siva added 18 points for the Cardinals, who ended the season with a 16-game winning streak.
Congratulations to both teams for an amazing game. Now there’s only one question that everyone wants answered, who won the damn office pool?
