ATLANTA -- The men's NCAA championship game takes place tonight in Atlanta with Louisville facing Michigan. The top-seeded Cardinals bring a 34-5 mark into the final game of the season. The Wolverines are 31-7.
Louisville blew through its first four opponents before rallying from a dozen points down in the second half to beat surprising Wichita State 72-68 in the national semifinals. Michigan is coming off a win over Syracuse.
Michigan won a national title in 1989, beating Seton Hall in overtime. They've lost three other times in the championship. The program is best known, of course, for the Fab Five, that group of five stellar recruits who led the Wolverines to back-to-back finals appearances in 1992 and '93.
With the NCAA title game in the spotlight, the NBA takes the evening off.
