Louisville vs Michigan Preview

The Louisville Cardinal face-off with the Michigan Wolverines in the Wichita Regional Final on Monday night in Kansas. The winner will advance to play South Carolina in the Final Four in Minneapolis on Friday.

The Cardinal will be playing in their fourth straight Elite Eight and will be looking to continue the quest for their first national title in program history.

Monday night will be a new experience for the Wolverines’ program, which will be taking the court for the first time ever in a regional final.

Here’s a look at the breakdown for each team as they head into the Elite Eight contest:

No. 1 Louisville Cardinal (28-4, 16-2 ACC)

Louisville got by Albany (83-51), Gonzaga (68-59), and Tennessee (76-64) in the first three rounds of this year’s tournament.

The Cardinal let a 15-point lead wither to two points on Saturday in their Sweet 16 game, but pulled away down the stretch for a 12-point win over Tennessee.

Sophomore guard Hailey Van Lith led the team in scoring with 23 points and had six assists, while senior forward Emily Engstler tallied 20 points and 10 rebounds.

“We just kept reminding each other that as long as we get stops and rebounds, we’ll be up no matter what, no matter if we score or not. We were able to execute that,” said Van Lith following the win on Saturday. “All of our players stepped up and got rebounds and made good plays on defense and we were able to pull away.”

Louisville has three players that are averaging double-digit points per game – Van Lith (14.3 ppg), Engstler (12.0 ppg), and redshirt senior guard Kianna Smith (11.9 ppg).

The Cardinal beat the Wolverines in a matchup earlier this season at home, 70-48, on Dec. 2, 2021. Engstler led the way with 18 points and 14 rebounds, while Smith put up 17 points.

Louisville will be looking to get past the round they were beaten in last year, when they fell as a No. 2 seed to top-seeded Stanford, 78-63.

No. 3 Michigan Wolverines (25-6, 13-4 Big Ten)

Michigan defeated American (74-39), Villanova (64-49), and South Dakota (52-49) on the way to advancing to their first-ever Elite Eight.

Wolverines senior forward Naz Hillmon leads the team in scoring at 21.1 points per game, which is 13th-best in the nation. The All-American and Big Ten Player of the Year led the team with 17 points and 10 rebounds in the Sweet 16 win over tenth-seeded South Dakota on Saturday.

Senior guard Leigha Brown is the second-leading scorer for the Wolverines at 14.5 points per game. Brown, who will use a fifth year of eligibility in 2022-23, was named to the All-Big Ten second team for the second consecutive year.

The Wolverines are one of the top rebounding teams in the country, ranking sixth in rebounding margin (+10.5).

Michigan is 1-5 all-time against Louisville, including a streak of four straight losses that they will be looking to snap in order to reach their first Final Four.
