UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) - Michigan and Louisville punched their tickets to the NCAA Men's Final Four with regional championship wins on Sunday.

Nik Stauskus hit for 23 points and Trey Burke added 15 as Michigan reached the Final Four for the first time in 20 years with their 79-59 romp past Florida in the South Regional Final at Arlington Texas.

The Wolverines will meet Wichita State in one of the national semifinals on Saturday.

Louisville will play Syracuse in the other after their 85-63 win over Duke at the Midwest Regional final in Indianapolis.

Russ Smith led the Cardinals' win with 23 points, a win diminished by the loss of Kevin Ware to a severe leg injury in the first half.
