For the second time in three years a Louisville Cardinal has won the Dunk of the Year award. Chane Behanan was announced this year’s winner on Thursday night for his ferocious throw down against DePaul in February.

several questions facing Cards.
For the past month, I've been trying to figure out what it is about Louisville's historically great pressure defense that made it the prohibitive favorite leading into March, the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament, and the all-over-but-the-net-cutting presumptive NCAA champion going into the Final Four.
