(AP) John Beilein will have plenty of fans in the crowd Monday night when his Michigan team takes on Louisville for the national title.


And some of them don't even have much of a connection to Michigan.


"We have several players here. Two LeMoyne players are here. I've heard from Erie Community College players, Canisius players," Beilein said, rattling off a few of his previous seven coaching stops. He has also coached at Nazareth, Richmond, West Virginia, and of course, Michigan.


Beilein's best NCAA tournament run before this season was a quarterfinal appearance with West Virginia in 2005. The Mountaineers finally lost to ... Rick Pitino's Louisville team. Now it's Beilein vs. Pitino again for even bigger stakes.
