ATLANTA (AP) - Virginia Commonwealth's press.

Syracuse's zone.

Michigan has handled every test so far. Now it's time for the final exam - a Louisville team that is the NCAA tournament's top overall seed.

Michigan is trying for its first national title since 1989, and Monday night will be its first appearance in the championship game since 1993, when the Fab Five lost to North Carolina.

The last two decades have been difficult for the Wolverines, but after sanctions and mediocrity, they're back in the spotlight at college basketball's signature event. Coach John Beilein's team is plenty talented, but point guard Trey Burke and the Wolverines have reached this point in large part because of their smarts - and their ability to adjust quickly to new challenges.
