Unbeaten Cardinals triumph in donnybrook

[LOUISVILLE-UCLA MEN] Top-seed Louisville remained unbeaten and advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Men's Tournament for the first time with a 5-4 win over UCLA in a wild match played before 5,467 fans on a snowy Saturday evening in Louisville.

The Cardinals trailed 2-0 and 3-1, went ahead 4-3 only to concede the tying goal in the 81st minute and finally won the game with less than a minute to play on a goal Aaron Horton, who was able to work his way around a slew of UCLA defenders before getting off the game-winning shot.
