Of the four games that comprised this year's "Elite Eight" in the NCAA tournament, Louisville vs Duke will probably attract the most attention from the American public.

On one hand you have Duke, the perennial college basketball powerhouse, and on the other hand you have Louisville, which is currently the highest ranked school left in the NCAA tournament.
