Published on April 11, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Now that the national championship game is just a few days passed, it’s time to look back at some of the historical numbers from the game. Here are some outstanding performance, and other notes from Louisville’s win over Michigan.

- Luke Hancock was named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player. In the title game he was an impressive 5 for 5 from three. That’s the most makes without a miss in NCAA championship history.

- Hancock is also the first player to be named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player while come off the bench.

- Of Louisville 35 field goals attempts, 23 of them came in the paint. Peyton Siva and Chane Behanan combined to score 24 of Louisville’s 34 paint points. 18 of those points came in the 2nd half.

- Louisville just allowed 2 second chance points in the 2nd half.

- Siva finished the national championship game with 18 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals. He is the first player to do that in a championship game since 1986.

- He is also the first player since Derrick Rose in 2008 to finish the game with at least 18 points. 6 rebounds, and 5 assists.

- Trey Burke becomes the third Wooden Award to lose the title game.

- Michigan shot 52.1 % from the field. That is the highest field goal percentage for a losing team since Georgetown in 1985.

- Unknown Michigan Spike Albrecht was the talk of the title game early on. For the game he was 4 of 5 from three point range. For the tournament he was 9 of 10 from three; he was just shy of the mark for most three pointers without a miss
