ATLANTA (AP) -- Don't call these guys the Fab Five. 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. The Wolverines got sloppy in the second half and barely hung on at the end, winning despite a tough night for Associated Press player of the year Trey Burke. He scored only seven points.
