Kentucky Faces UConn in NCAA Championship

The Final Four is now down to the final two.

Kentucky plays UConn for the NCAA men’s championship tonight in Arlington, Texas.

The UConn Huskies defeated Florida 63 – 53 in one of the semifinals on Saturday.

The other game was much closer. The Kentucky Wildcats knocked off Wisconsin in the semifinals 74 – 73 on a last second shot. Kentucky’s Aaron Harrison took a pass from his twin brother, Andrew, and sank a three-pointer for the win.
