Louisville 82, Michigan 76
The University of Michigan men's basketball team (No. 10 AP, No. 11 Coaches) led by as many as 12 points in the first half -- on the strength of 17 points from freshman guard Spike Albrecht in the opening 20 minutes -- but Louisville (No. 2 AP, No. 2 Coaches) rallied to take the 82-76 victory in the NCAA Tournament final on Monday night inside the Georgia Dome.

The backcourt tandem of sophomore point guard Trey Burke and junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr. took a backseat to Albrecht, who stole the show in the opening 20 minutes, scoring a career-best 17 points on 6-of-7 shooting in 16 minutes. He nailed four three-pointers, had a pair of driving layups and knocked down one free throw. Burke finished the game with a team-best 24 points and three assists in the contest. Hardaway contributed 12 points, five rebounds and four assists, while Albrecht finished with 17 points in the game.
