Louisville may be the tournament's overall No. 1 seed, but the Cardinals certainly weren't rewarded with a cushy path to the Final Four. Winners of 10 straight, including the Big East championship, Louisville is a worthy favorite. But there is plenty of company in a loaded Midwest Regional. Led by forward Mason Plumlee, Duke was a cinch for a top seed before losing to Maryland in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. No team is carried more by emotion than Atlantic Ten champion St. Louis.

Russ Smith scored 18 points, Peyton Siva added 14, and No. 12 Louisville shot 52 percent to run away from No. 25 Marquette, 70-51, on Sunday. The lopsided outcome was somewhat surprising considering what was at stake for both teams in the Big East. Marquette had an opportunity to take a one-game lead on Syracuse, but the Golden Eagles (15-5, 6-2) were left settling for a first-place tie with the Orange. The Cardinals (18-4, 6-3) moved a half-game closer to both schools with their second straight win, remaining in a four-way tie for third.

It looks as if the 76ers are starting the process of looking at potential draft picks. On Tuesday, the Sixers brought in Temple's Scootie Randall, Louisville's Peyton Siva, and Kentucky's Archie Goodwin. The workout was unannounced. Last season as a senior, Randall, who graduated from Communications Tech, averaged 11.3 points and 6.3 rebounds for the Owls. Siva, the starting point guard for national champion Louisville, averaged 10 points, 5.7 assists, and 2.3 steals. In one season at Kentucky, Goodwin averaged 14.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.7 assists.

Sean Kilpatrick keyed Cincinnati's early three-point barrage and scored 18 points as the Bearcats held on for a 71-68 victory over No. 2 Syracuse on Friday night in a semifinal of the Big East tournament. The fourth-seeded Bearcats (24-9) will meet Louisville, which beat Notre Dame in the other semifinal, in Saturday night's championship game in New York's Madison Square Garden. To get there, the Bearcats ended the 11-game winning streak of the top-seeded Orange (31-2). They did it with an incredible shooting performance over the opening 14 minutes of the game when they took a 17-point lead, and then by holding on as Syracuse was able to get within one point in the final seconds.

Chane Behanan scored 15 points and Gorgui Dieng anchored Louisville's stifling defense with seven blocked shots, helping the Cardinals knock off top-seeded Michigan State, 57-44, Thursday night in the West Regional semifinals in Phoenix. Louisville (29-9) smothered the NCAA tournament's best-shooting team with its matchup zone, getting good pressure from its guards up top and some big swats by Dieng, one of the nation's top shot-blockers. The Cardinals relied on three-point shooting in the first half and went inside during the second to befuddle the Spartans and earn a trip to the West final against either Marquette or Florida on Saturday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Peyton Siva scored 16 points, and Louisville beat Villanova 84-74 on Wednesday night to return to .500 in the Big East after a rough start to conference play. Siva was brilliant late when the Cardinals (16-5, 4-4) needed him most. He made a turnaround jumper from 15 feet to give the Cardinals a 73-67 lead with 2:56 left, then made two sharp passes on the next two possession that led to points, including Jared Swopshire's three-pointer in the corner that made it 78-70 with 1:09 left.

ATLANTA - Louisville already had the bigger names, the better team and some unfinished business after coming up short in last year's Final Four. All Wichita State had was the cute-and-cuddly underdog angle. Now the Shockers don't even have that. Kevin Ware is everybody's favorite player since he suffered a broken leg in gruesome fashion last weekend yet summoned the strength to encourage his teammates, and having him at the Final Four has given the top-seeded Cardinals (33-5)

LOUISVILLE - Villanova's shooting stroke went south, and its defense went downhill in the second half at Louisville on Wednesday night. The Wildcats, who led by five points at halftime, shot just 30.3 percent and were outscored, 45-30, in the second half as the host Cardinals rallied for an 84-74 Big East Conference victory in front of 21,219 fans at the KFC Yum! Center. "I thought we played good in the first half, but in the second half I thought our defense was just porous," Villanova coach Jay Wright said.

ATLANTA - Plenty of teams talk about how tight-knit they are, how the team matters more than any individual accomplishment. Louisville has the national title to prove it. Short-handed because of Kevin Ware's broken leg; facing yet another big deficit; and with their biggest star, Russ Smith, having a rare off night, the Cardinals just went to the next guys up. Luke Hancock made four consecutive three-pointers late in the first half, single-handedly...

THE TEAM to beat heading to Atlanta has not changed since everybody started filling out their brackets 2 weeks ago. Kevin Ware's gruesome first-half injury on Sunday delayed the inevitable. Duke was nearly on tilt then, just about ready to be run out of the arena. When Louisville coach Rick Pitino called timeout with 16 minutes left in Sunday's game and the score tied 42-42, he told his team to sprint the ball to the rim and pressure the ball on defense until Duke got exhausted. Barely 6 minutes later, Duke had no legs, Louisville had a 15-point lead, it was essentially over on the way to 85-63 and the Final Four was set.   The Final Four Just to demonstrate how much the game has changed in the 75 years of the NCAA Tournament, it took 30 wins to gain entrance to the 2013 Final Four.

NEW YORK - Peyton Siva had 11 points and eight assists to lead No. 4 Louisville to a 78-61 victory over No. 19 Syracuse on Saturday night, giving the Cardinals their second straight Big East tournament title. The Cardinals got their third title by overcoming a 16-point deficit in the second half - almost double the previous record in a championship game - and they kept pouring it on once they got the lead, going ahead by as many as 18 points. Second-seeded Louisville (29-5) - along with Georgetown and Marquette a tri-champion of the regular season - won its 10th straight game with its defense, forcing Syracuse into 20 turnovers and keeping the Orange off balance during the 24-3 run that turned the 16-point deficit into a 56-48 lead with 8 minutes, 51 seconds to play.
