No. 2 seed Louisville faces MI in coaching rematch

Tracy Wolfson

Well, OK, maybe it wasn't all that private.

That run, obviously, came to an end one fateful night in April of 2013, when Pitino claimed his second championship and left Beilein still in search of his first. MI opened the action on Saturday by upsetting No. 2 Louisville to advance to the Sweet 16.

The Michigan Wolverines advanced to the Sweet 16 on Sunday afternoon with a 73-69 win over the Louisville Cardinals. Wisconsin lost five of its last seven in the regular season and was beaten handily by MI in the conference tournament championship game.

Up nine with under 16 minutes to play, Louisville's Quentin Snider had a three that popped out.

Meyer suggested Wagner had extra energy to spend on this game, but he's a vigorous player on a daily basis.

The biggest surprise was the way it happened.

The Cardinals continued with another outburst at the beginning of the second half, going in front by nine at 41-32, 43-34, 45-36 and 47-38.

To prevent a repeat, Louisville sought to take away the Wolverines' long-range game. Credit the Wolverines, which have shown versatility and the capacity to shift their identity against different teams. The Cardinals' game plan was to contain MI point guard Derrick Walton Jr., play out on the Wolverines' lethal three-point attack, and take away the right-hand drives to the basket, where MI statistically does most of its damage off the dribble. If he had not made those shots, the Wolverines would've lost due to the last-second 3-pointer by the Cowboys.

"At the time that we were making that great run, it was, 'What's next, what's next, what's next, let's just keep going, ' " Beilein said.

Joe White: On Thursday, Michigan basketball answered my biggest question, which was "did they have anything left in the tank?" "He's not afraid of anything", Walton said.

The Cardinals like to use pressure defense to crank up the tempo. The trouble that Louisville's system can create for opponents is directly countered by what MI does well - move the ball and hit open shots. "It was just a matter of it all coming together at the right time". "Our offense in the last ten days or two weeks, we've gotten significantly better because we worked inside to out.".

Moritz "Moe" Wagner, the German import from Berlin, carried MI (26-11) with a career-high 26 points, hitting 11 of 14 shots. An Adel 3 moments later put Louisville on top 15-8 six minutes into the contest. Wilson's four free throws with less than 30 seconds to play sealed the win. Struggling from long range with only two three-pointers for the first 17 minutes.

Donovan Mitchell led Louisville with 19 points and seven rebounds.

Pitino lamented bad switches, poor communication, failing to force the Wolverines off using their right hands on the dribble and other defensive failures. MI has all the momentum and no one can seem to stop them. "I just said to Coach B, we only shot six 3s today and we won". "Immediately, I saw (my) team rooting for Oklahoma State".
