Greg Bishop of The New York Times may have put the Louisville win over Siena in its best proper perspective:
“The noise rose to levels so deafening late in the second half here, the ground shook. There was Siena, the height-challenged, obscure, midmajor team from Albany, that Louisville, the top seed in this entire N.C.A.A. tournament, was supposed to easily discard. Fly, meet swatter, if you will.
“Siena had taken a 4-point lead with 7 minutes 45 seconds remaining, and that is precisely when Terrence Williams decided to take over. Williams, the senior forward, put back a teammateâ€™s miss, drilled a 3-pointer from the right corner and knocked down another jumper, distancing Louisville from Sienaâ€™s upset dreams.”
