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.
