And then there were two.
Following Saturday's Final Four match-ups in Atlanta, the stage is set for Monday's NCAA men's basketball championship where overall No. 1-seeded Louisville will face off against Michigan to take home the coveted NCAA title.
This will be the first game between the two teams, who play in different conferences, since 1978.
Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points and Ryan Anderson added 23 to lead the New Orleans Hornets to a 112-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night.
Anthony Davis had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Brian Roberts scored 15 and Eric Gordon 14 for the Hornets, who snapped a two-game losing streak, including a blowout loss to Miami on Friday. Davis' double-double was his 17th, tops among NBA rookies.
The New Orleans Hornets were routed by the Miami Heat Friday night at the New Orleans Arena, 108-89.
The Hornets never had a chance. LeBron James devastated their defense early in the first quarter, putting up 15 points in the first period alone. James, the league’s leader in efficiency stats (32.2 EFF), scored 36 points on 65% shooting, and sat the entire fourth quarter.
James fired home a season high seven three pointers, six during a thirteen minute span during which he sank every field goal he attempted and all but one of his free throws.
The New Orleans Hornets have signed guard Terrel Harris for the remainder of the season, the team reported today in a press release.
The Hornets have struggled with injuries at the guard position as the season has wound down, losing backup guard Austin Rivers to a broken hand a few weeks ago. Guard Eric Gordon has yet to be cleared to play in back-to-back games by team physicians since returning to the lineup from a lingering knee injury.
