Louisville's Blueprint to Beat Michigan in 2013 NCAA Championship Game
Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports
The Cardinals will have a number of advantages over Michigan come Monday night's title game.

Monday’s national championship game is exactly what college hoops fans had hoped for: the nation’s most potent offense matched up against the country’s most aggressive and stingy defense.

One would think that in order for Louisville to win, it would need to control the pace and force turnovers, two staples of Rick Pitino's program.

However, against Michigan, both of those strategies could be irrelevant. The Wolverines rarely turn the ball over (as evidenced in the wins over Florida and Syracuse), and if any team can match the Cardinals’ agility, it’s Michigan.

So, aside from the obvious “force turnovers,” we break down where the Cardinals should attack on the offensive end, where they need to focus their efforts on the defensive end and which players need to step up in order for Louisville to win its third national championship.
