Louisville wins title
The hot shooting of reserve guard Luke Hancock helped Louisville win its third NCAA national title Monday night at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Hancock connected on 5-of-6 field goal attempts, including 5-of-5 from 3-point land to lead his team in scoring with 22 points, and help the Cardinals defeat Michigan 82-76 in the championship game. Point guard Peyton Silva scored 18 and forward Chane Behanan added 15. Behanan also ripped down a game-high 12 rebounds. Six feet, 11 inch center Gorgui Dieng blocked four shots in the game for Louisville. Trey Burke, Associated Press’ college basketball player of the year, led the Wolverines with 24 points. But Burke spent much of the first half on the bench with two early fouls. However, reserve guard Spike Albrecht kept Michigan in the game in the first half with his solid play and hot shooting with 17 points. Louisville coach Rick Pitino was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this week. The coach also won an NCAA championship at Kentucky in 1996.
