 Michigan's latest group of young stars is determined to leave its own legacy.

 

Attacking Syracuse's suffocating zone defense in the first half with 3-pointers, crisp passing and a fearless attitude, the Wolverines advanced to the national championship game with a 61-56 victory over the Orange in the Final Four on Saturday night.

 

Michigan (31-7) will be going for its first national title since 1989 when it faces Louisville on Monday at the Georgia Dome. Syracuse (30-10) failed to complete an all-Big East final in the fabled league's last season before breaking up.

 

Louisville was established as a 4 1/2-point favorite.

 

Don't expect that to bother the brash young Wolverines a bit.
