Louisville Cardinals on Cover of This Week's Sports Illustrated

The Louisville Cardinals overcame a devastating injury to reserve guard Kevin Ware in the elite eight, survived a showdown with Wichita State in the national semifinals and rallied from a 12 point deficit to defeat the Michigan Wolverines 82-76 in a national championship game for the ages. The Cardinals’ Luke Hancock, the tournament’s Most Outstanding player, and point guard Peyton Siva appear on the cover of the April 15, 2013, issue of Sports Illustrated, on newsstands Wednesday. This is the fifth time that Louisville basketball has appeared on the SI cover and second week in a row. The victory was their first NCAA basketball title since 1986 and third overall.
