Louisville squanders lead, loses 76-70 to Spartans in OT

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Wayne Blackshear almost willed Louisville to another trip to the Final Four.

The hard-charging senior scored 28 points on Sunday, but a missed free throw by Mangok Mathiang with 4.9 seconds left in regulation cost the Cardinals a trip to their third Final Four in four seasons. Michigan State beat them 76-70 in overtime in the East Regional final of the NCAA Tournament.

"We wanted to get back to another Final Four. It didn't go that way," Blackshear said, not really wanting to think about what was his last college game. "The better team won tonight."
