NCAA tournament roundup: Kentucky and UConn will meet for a title

ARLINGTON, Texas — No, this was not an instant replay, though it certainly is turning into a highlight reel Kentucky and Aaron Harrison could get used to watching over and over again.

Harrison took a pass from his twin brother, Andrew, spotted up from NBA range and watched the ball rattle in for the lead with 5.7 seconds left to lift the Wildcats to a 74-73 victory Saturday night over Wisconsin in the Final Four.

It’s the third straight game the Kentucky freshman has made a three for the winning points in this magical ride for the Wildcats (29-10), and the second straight time the pass has come from his brother for a spot-up shot from the left center of the arc.

Traevon Jackson had a last-second shot to try to beat the Wildcats, but the desperation jumper rimmed out and once again Harrison found himself at the bottom of a dog pile at center court.

Eighth-seeded Kentucky will play seventh-seeded UConn in the final Monday — the highest seed total to play for the title since they started putting numbers by the names back in 1979.

Wisconsin (30-8) set a Final Four record by going 95 percent from the free-throw line — 19-for-20. But it was that one miss that cost the Badgers. Jackson got Andrew Harrison to jump into him while attempting a 3-pointer with 16.4 seconds left. His first free throw rimmed out, and after he made the second two, Wisconsin had a 73-71 lead and Kentucky had the ball.

Connecticut 63, Florida 53: At Arlington, Texas, Florida played its worst game of the season on college basketball’s biggest stage.

And the team’s backcourt had a lot to do with it.

Southeastern Conference player of the year Scottie Wilbekin and fellow guards Michael Frazier II and Kasey Hill struggled in a loss to Connecticut in an NCAA semifinal. It ended Florida’s season and school-record, 30-game winning streak.

Wilbekin finished with four points and just one assist for the Gators (36-3), whose last lost came at UConn on Dec. 2. Frazier hit a 3-pointer off the opening tip, but did little else the rest of the way. Hill scored seven points and was in foul trouble for much of the game.

On the defensive end, the three guards were no match for UConn’s Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright. The Huskies duo combined for 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists. UConn (31-8) advanced to Monday’s championship contest.

The Huskies did everything right after a horrible start. Florida led 16-4 over the game’s first 10 minutes, but UConn got hot from 3-point range and started chipping into the lead.
