Louisville upsets Tennessee to advance to 2013 Final Four

In yet another shocking development in 2013 March(/April) Madness season, the Louisville Cardinals have upset the Tennessee Lady Vols to advance to the Final Four with an 86-78 win in the Oklahoma City regional final tonight.

Setting aside any deep analysis, the bottom line is that the Lady Vols came out flat and just never recovered despite mounting an extended comeback in the second half. In contrast, this Cardinals team is playing absolutely fearless basketball right now and has just outworked their last two opponents.

But more than anything, tonight's game should put to rest the notion that Louisville beat Baylor on a fluke, partially buoyed by playing their first two rounds at home: lightning doesn't usually strike twice.
