No. 1 seeded Louisville were one of the pre-tournament favorites and they have lived up to their billing until now. They will face off against No. 4 seeded Michigan, who managed to break Syracuse hearts on Saturday night in a closely fought victory over their orange rivals.
The Cardinals easily ran through the Midwest Region, winning their games by an average of a massive 22 points.
They suffered the dramatic and horrific loss of guard Kevin Ware as they took on Duke, but recovered from that set back to make their way through to the Final Four.
They were given a severe test against No. 9 seeded Wichita State on Saturday, and at one point it looked like the underdogs were about to claim their biggest scalp and make it through to the Championship Game. However, Louisville showed their character and stole the game away towards the end in an exciting 72-68 victory.
Now just Michigan stand in Louisville's way in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, and they wil make sure it won't be easy for the Cardinals to win their first title since 1986.
