(Newser) – The brackets are nearly filled in: Louisville and Michigan will play Monday night for the NCAA title. Top-seed Louisville advanced tonight by ending the Cinderella run of ninth-seed Wichita State, 72-68, but the Cardinals had to overcome a 12-point deficit in the final 10 minutes. Michigan, meanwhile, beat fellow No. 4 seed Syracuse, 61-56. The Wolverines led by 11 after the first half and never trailed in the second—although Syracuse had a chance to tie in the final seconds.
