ATLANTA - The NCAA title is heading back to Kentucky.

But, not Lexington, where it went a year ago.

So much for college basketball lacking in drama, offensive talent and thrilling games.

In an NCAA championship game for the ages, the 35-5 Louisville Cardinals ended a long drought, surviving 82-76 against a game Michigan squad to become champions for the first time since 1986.
