ATLANTA (AP) - With an aching heart and a shot that couldn't miss, Luke Hancock helped Kevin Ware and the rest of the Louisville Cardinals win their national title.

Given increased playing time and more shots because of Ware's injury, Hancock went 5 for 5 from 3-point range in Monday night's 82-76 win over Michigan in the national title game. He finished with 22 points to add to the 20 from Saturday night's semifinals.

Quite a performance from the player coach Rick Pitino was afraid to start because he wanted to keep him out of foul trouble.

Quite a treat for Hancock's father, Bill, who is gravely ill with a sickness the family does not want to disclose, but made the trip down from Roanoke, Va., nonetheless to see his son become the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four.
