Hancock shines in Louisville win

By Dick Vitale

Luke Hancock was the surprise star of stars on Saturday night.

Averaging a little more than seven points per game, Hancock came through with 21 big points, including several late free throws as the Cardinals got to the winner's circle.

Give a lot of credit to Wichita State for a brilliant performance. The Shockers withstood a lot of pressure but Louisville's defense wore down the Shockers.

The bench was so big as Tim Henderson hit a couple of big threes. He had made four all season.

Congrats to Louisville for surviving and advancing to face Michigan in the national championship game.
