It’s over: The Louisville Cardinals are NCAA champs.
Luke Hancock made four straight 3-pointers late in the first half, single-handedly halting what was threatening to become a Michigan runaway, and Peyton Siva and Chane Behanan erupted for monster second halves to lead the Cardinals to their third national title.
“I’m just so happy for our team,” said Hancock, the first sub in tournament history to win most outstanding player honours. “I’m happy that multiple guys got to contribute on this great run. Everybody from [walk-on] Tim Henderson on. It’s just great for our team.” (Photo: Charlie Neibergall/The Associated Press)
