MJ: Gimme Louisville

MJ: Gimme Louisville

And the winner is ....

College basketball beat writer MARCUS JACKSON’s quick read on Monday’s championship game:

Michigan made Syracuse’s zone look average in the first half Saturday, with Mitch McGary having his way inside while reserves Caris LeVert (a former John Groce signee) and Spike Albrecht connected from long range. But the Wolverines struggled against the fullcourt press, a Louisville staple. Cards apply pressure and cut down the nets.

Better to root for, and see Michigan win the national title. Makes the B1G conference stronger and backs up the season long claims.  Not easy to go 0.500 or better in the B1G.

Go Illini
