No. 1 overall seed Louisville takes the court tonight, trying to derail the Final Four dreams of Oregon in the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals.
The Cardinals have been dominant in racking up wins over North Carolina A&T and Colorado State by an average of 28.5 points while forcing 47 turnovers. During the current 12-game winning streak, Louisville has held opponents to fewer than 55 points and 38 percent shooting, while forcing an average of 17 turnovers.
Beating those kinds of numbers appears like a tough task for the Ducks, who shot over 50 percent from 3 -point range in their two tournament wins. The second game of the Indianapolis doubleheader features a match-up of two of the top coaches in the game.
Duke's Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee) holds the record for most career wins by a coach and has won four national titles. Michigan State's Tom Izzo has racked up a school record 439 wins while claiming one national championship. The winner moves on to the regional final.
The South Regional semifinals in Arlington, Texas, have top seed Kansas going against Michigan, and Florida taking on tournament darling Florida-Gulf Coast.
