A look at Monday’s NCAA Championship game:

Louisville (34-5) vs. Michigan (31-7): Both national semifinal games were outstanding competitions but let’s hope we get some wide-open offense in this one. Louisville met the challenge of Wichita, fighting uphill all night, but the Cardinals gripped the game tightly when it was winning time. Michigan overcame the Syracuse zone with some surprising contributions from its bench. In this game, the Wolverines will have to overcome Louisville’s full-court pressure. Michigan’s guards should be up to the task and they need to look to score against the press. Syracuse’s big guys failed to deliver against Michigan and an opponent can succeed in the paint against the Wolverines. Louisville’s best big man, Gorqui Dieng, has a chance to excel and be the difference in the game. If he can give the Cardinals some quality offense that should be enough.
