Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Michigan solved Syracuse's puzzling 2-3 zone in the first half and did just enough over the final 20 minutes.

And the youngest team in the NCAA Tournament will get a chance to do something the younger Fab Five squad couldn't do 20 years prior.

Mitch McGary tallied 10 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in the Wolverines' 61-56 triumph over the Orange in the Final Four on Saturday.

Michigan (31-7) is looking for its first national championship since 1989 when it takes on Louisville on Monday night.

C.J. Fair netted 22 points to lead the Orange (30-10), who were unable to complete an all-Big East final in the league's last season before breaking apart.
