It took a while, but here’s my tribute video for the Louisville Cardinals’ 2013 NCAA Men’s basketball championship. It was one of the most exciting basketball games I’ve had the pleasure of watching, rivaling even the 5 overtime marathon against Notre Dame. The second half delivered hard fought baskets, stifling defense, and relentless offensive attacks.
This was truly a worthy championship game full of champion performances. Peyton Siva delivered a performance akin to Derrick Rose’s championship game, ending his storied college career with his very best. Chane Behanan was a beast inside, standing as a man among boys. Luke Hancock was as close to perfect as a player could hope to ever be on the biggest stage of college basketball. The Cardinals showed the advantage of veteran experience and team chemistry that only comes with playing more than a year together, which has largely become a rarity for a lot of top programs.
Congratulations to the Louisville Cardinals from a proud Alumni!
Today, the Cards face number 9 seed Wichita in the Final Four in Atlanta. This video is in tribute to their amazing season. Go Cards! Do it for Ware!
