Minnesota could have spoiled Michigan's party Saturday night - if only they had held onto the ball.
With a national championship slipping away in the final minutes, Trey Burke raced back on defense and gave Michigan fans one more spectacular play to remember.
What a week for Rick Pitino! He's elected to the Hall of Fame. His horse is headed to the Kentucky Derby. His son gets a prominent head coaching job. Then he caps it off with what he wanted most. Another national championship.
"That's not usually my game. I'm supposed to get back on defense when we miss a shot, but my instincts told me to go for it," Albrecht said. "I was able to get to the ball, and then J-Mo did a great job. I think he had three guys on him when he put that ball in."
"Coach (John) Beilein, he's a great coach," said Michigan freshman Spike Albrecht who had a 17-point first half against Louisville.
