Michigan advances
to NCAA title game
vs. Louisville
Daily Sports Editor
ATLANTA - Just 40 more
minutes remain of the college
basketball season.
Michigan (12-6 Big Ten, 31-7
overall) and Louisville (14-4 Big
East, 34-5) face off in the Nation-
al Championship game on Mon-

day night, and unlike the last
few opponents, each team has
high praises
and respect for Michigan vs.
one another in Louisville

one day of prep, When:
is very difficult Monday
to prepare for,"
said Louisville Where:
coach Rick Piti- Georgia Dome
no. "On paper TV/Radio:
you would say CBS

this is a young basketball team.
But because (Michigan coach
John Beilein) has done such a
great job molding this team, they
play like seniors. You don't see
guys pass, catch and shoot like
that. This is a remarkable team
the way they share, the way they
pass. They don't play like a young
basketball team."
Beilein says the same thing
about Pitino, whom he admires
greatly - and it's well deserved
on both sides. Each coach has
molded his respective team to
playing the nation's best basket-

ball at just the right time.
The Cardinals are the one
of the nation's best defensive
teams, running a full-court press
scheme that likes to trap and
hound ball handlers into forcing
turnovers. Louisville holds oppo-
nents to 58.3 points per game this
season, and 60.8 points per game
during the tournament.
But a great defense is nothing
new to Michigan, which boasts
one of the nation's highest-scor-
ing offenses. The Wolverines
had to go through Virginia Com-
monwealth's infamous "Havoc"

full-court press, Kansas' tough
interior defense, Florida's physi-
cality and Syracuse's 2-3 zone to
reach the National Champion-
ship game, and have done so by
sharing the ball well and getting
quality shots.
"What's reallyunique is every-
one has been very different, even
thoughthey're all good defensive
teams," Beilein said. "VCU is an
animal of its own with the way
they continue to apply pressure
to you. It's different than Flori-
da's. I hope we can do one more,
just one more game where we

can put 60-to-70 points up there
in these games. We could have a
'W' if we can put up those num-
ber of points."
That shouldn't be too big of
a concern for the Wolverines.
Michigan has the National Player
of the Year in sophomore point
guard Trey Burke and a slew of
capable ball handlers, includ-
ing backup point guard Spike
Albrecht, that slit through VCU's
press and handled Florida's on-
ball pressure. The Wolverines are
also the best team in the nation

DMUM raises over $500K

Annual 30-hour
event surpasses
2012 donations
Daily Staff Reporter
At exactly 4 p.m. Sunday
afternoon, 1,000 exhausted stu-
dents finally sat down on the
floor of the Indoor Track and
Field Building in perfect unison.
They had been on their feet for
30 hours.
The students were partici-
pating in the 16th annual Dance

doing plenty of dancing - for
30 consecutive hours to raise

Proppe to become
CSG president after
Osborn disqualified
Daily StaffReporter
About 25 members of forUM
and youMICH attended the
Central Student Judiciary's
hearing on Saturday that upheld
the University Elections Com-
mission's decision to disqualify
the winners of the Central Stu-
dent Government's presidential
While the two groups of sup-
porters were seated only a few
feet apart, the CSJ's polemic
final ruling has only pushed the
sides further apart and raised
questions about the steps can-
didates and parties will take to
win an election.
It initially appeared that LSA
juniors Chris Osborn and Hay-
ley Sakwa, forUM's respective
presidential and vice presiden-
tial candidates, would be the
next executives of CSG after
received nearly 500 votes more
than their closest competitors -
Business junior Michael Proppe
and LSA sophomore Bobby
Dishell, youMICH's presiden-

tial and vice presidential candi-
Members of youMICH filed a
complaint claiming that Osborn
was influencing students while
they voted and provided pho-
tographic evidence of Osborn
standing near voters while they
were on the CSG voting site.
The UEC issued eight demer-
its to Osborn and Sakwa, more
than five necessary to disqual-
ify a candidate from the elec-
tion. Though Sakwa was not
involved in the influence of vot-
ers, election rules mandate that
both party candidates must be
removed from the election.
Proppe and Dishell are now
rising president and vice presi-
dent of CSG, but Proppe, who
didn't attend the CSJ or initial
UEC hearing, said this wasn't
how he wanted itto happen.
LSA sophomore Laurel Ruza,
the chair of youMICH, said it
was never the party's goal to
disqualify an opponent.
"It's not our intent to kick
people out - it's that we see a
violation, we're filing it," Ruza
said. "We see the code broken,
we'd like to address it."
Osborn said he found it "iron-
ic" that Ruza had previously said
that youMICH did not think
hearings were the appropriate

Day of speakers
and performers
draws 1,300
Daily News Editor
Former student body presi-
dent Chris Armstrong admits
he considered taking his own
life after he was stalked and

bullied for being gay by Andrew
Shirvell, then an assistant
attorney general of the state of
Michigan. But thanks to family,
friends and a supportive Univer-
sity community, Armstrong said
he was not only able to overcome
the bullying, but also tap into his
potential to spread a message of
hope to others suffering from
the same abuse.
Armstrong's speech was one
of 20 during the fourth annual

TEDxUofM, a student-run, day-
long conference based on "ideas
worth spreading" that brought
1,300 University students and
faculty to the Power Center on
Friday. "Untapped." was this
year's theme: Speakers present-
ed on a range of topics, from the
untapped human potential in
Detroit to the untapped abilities
of a "wannabe rock star" turned
Broken into three sessions

- Unexplored, Unleashed and
Unveiled - the conference
moved swiftly from speaker to
speaker. In between sessions,
attendees were treatedto round-
table discussions on various top-
ics, caffeine-infused cookies and
live-music performances.
Armstrong, the last speaker
of the day, claimed he didn't
have a solution for stopping bul-
lies, choosing instead to discuss
