It seemed Louisville had lost their momentum as they trailed the underdogs Wichita State on Saturday night. But the Cardinals bounced back winning 72-68 to clinch their spot in the NCAA championship game.
Louisville's Kevin Ware who suffered a gruesome knee injury and underwent surgery last week was on his feet last night as his team took the win.
"We've got to bring our best game," Ware told ESPN. "It's the last game of the season. If we lose, everything we've worked for just goes down the drain. That's the last thing we want right now."
Louisville and Michigan will face off tonight at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta at 9:23 p.m. ET
