After a slow first half, it looked like Wichita State was going to come away with an upset victory when it led by as many as 12 in the second half. Then something crazy happened: Louisville decided to show up . The Cardinals forced a few key turnovers late in the half to force themselves back into the game. Their suffocating defense took control soon after, and when the buzzer rang, Louisville came out on top, 72-68. Luke Hancock led the team with 20 points off the bench. Does this mean we will see a Big East rematch this Monday?

The win struck a special chord with Kevin Ware, who shared this very special moment with his father:
