The Louisville men's basketball program will have to vacate its 2013 NCAA title and 2012 Final Four appearance after the NCAA denied its appeal of what the school described as “draconian penalties” levied against the team. The NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee also upheld the penalty that requires Louisville to return money received through conference revenue sharing for NCAA tournament appearances in 2012, '13, '14 and '15.
