In the end, Rick Pitino out-coached John Beilein on the day he was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Pitino is now the only coach to win national championships with two different schools. He won at Kentucky in 1996 and now Louisville.
He also just told Jim Nantz that he will be getting a tattoo to celebrate the victory.
The Cardinals finished off the first half strongly and picked up where they left off in the second half. Luke Hancock had 22 points for Louisville and Peyton Siva had 18, running the team all over the place. Mitch McGary was invisible for Michigan. Spike Albrecht still has 17 points.
