2017 NCAA Tournament Louisville vs. Michigan game preview
This rematch of the 2013 NCAA Tournament championship game pits two of the glamour programs in college basketball, garnering the early time slot all on its own.
Back in 2013, the Cardinals and coach Rick Pitino topped coach John Beilein and Michigan 82-76.
Louisville will again be tasked with stopping a red-hot team led by an experienced point guard who is on top of his game. This time, it’s Derrick Walton Jr. leading the Wolverines (25-11), who won the Big Ten Tournament and then topped Oklahoma State 92-91 on Friday in the first round.
Walton had 26 points, 11 assists and 5 rebounds in the win.
Meanwhile, Louisville (25-8) topped Jacksonville State 78-63 behind 18 points from Mangok Mathiang, 16 points apiece from Deng Adel and Quentin Snider and 11 from Ray Spalding.
Michigan’s run has been even more compelling as a human interest story. Its plane leaving for the Big Ten Tournament in Washington, D.C., slid off the runway, setting travel plans back a day and adding a traumatic experience.
