The Cardinals mount the second-biggest comeback in NCAA Championship history to win its 16th game in a row and the one that matters most.

This year's NCAA men's Division One National Championship will undoubtedly go down as a top ten final in tournament history.

Louisville didn't need last second shots or overtime, but it did need 12-point comeback to push past Michigan to win the championship, 82-76. 

In a year of winning streaks, Louisville is the only team to end its with a win—the Cardinals' sixteenth since losing the in five overtimes to Notre Dame in early February. Rick Pitino, in his 35th season as a head coach, was humbled at the press conference.
