Michigan falls short despite Burke, Albrecht

ATLANTA (AP) — Spike Albrecht shined while Trey Burke sat.

After all that, Michigan and Louisville were still pretty much even. Then the Wolverines couldn't stop Louisville in the second half.

With Burke on the bench in early foul trouble, the seldom-used Albrecht scored 17 points in the first half, and the Wolverines led by 12 in Monday night's national title game. But that lead was only one at halftime, the Cardinals went on to win 82-76.

Albrecht and Burke both played plenty in the second half, but Michigan couldn't stop Louisville from converting around the basket. Albrecht went scoreless after halftime, leaving Burke — the national player of the year — to try to rally Michigan. He did his best, finishing with 24 points, but it wasn't enough.
