Louisville Tops Michigan For NCAA Title

The Louisville Cardinals came into the NCAA Tournament as the top overall seed
and vindicated themselves Monday by beating Michigan, 82-76, in an intense
national championship game at the Georgia Dome. Luke Hancock, after erupting
for 20 points in Saturday's comeback win over Wichita State, scored 14 of his
22 points in a three-minute span late in the first half to help the Cardinals
overcome another a 12-point deficit. Hancock, part of a shorthanded bench due
to the absence of Kevin Ware, also hit a dagger 3-pointer down the stretch and
a couple clutch free throws to seal Louisville's third national title and
first since 1986. Peyton Siva scored 14 of his 18 points after the break while
Chane Behanan contributed 15 points and 12 rebounds in a victory that closed
out a memorable day for Rick Pitino. Pitino, on the day his induction into the
Basketball Hall of Fame became official, became the first coach to win
national titles at two different schools, capturing his first with Kentucky in
1996.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
