Louisville's 2013 team: Legacy 'going to live on'

Members of the Louisville men's basketball team that won the 2013 national title have criticized the NCAA for its ruling Tuesday to have the championship vacated. "We won those games," Luke Hancock said. "It's not like that never happened."

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Gregg Marshall's Wichita State squad lost to Louisville in the 2013 Final Four after surrendering a double-digit lead in the second half. He said he's joked with Michigan coach John Beilein, who lost to Louisville in the title game, about a rematch. "I've already jokingly told Coach Beilein that we should be playing and calling it the 2013 national championship," Marshall told ESPN. "I mean, it would only matter to us."

The Louisville men's basketball program will have to vacate its 2013 NCAA title and 2012 Final Four appearance after the NCAA denied its appeal of what the school described as “draconian penalties” levied against the team. The NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee also upheld the penalty that requires Louisville to return money received through conference revenue sharing for NCAA tournament appearances in 2012, '13, '14 and '15.
