The teams for the Final Four have been set and now is the time to get your tickets for this showdown. Earlier today we looked at the Florida Gators and Wisconsin Badgers. Today, it the Kentucky Wildcats and the Connecticut Huskies who took care of business.
Connecticut went into this NCAA Tournament as a seventh seed. Reaching the Elite Eight they drew Michigan State, a fourth seed and one of the most feared teams in the contest. Shabazz Napier scored 25 points, 17 in the second half, to help the Huskies recover from nine down. Napier iced things with free throws at the end and took a turnaround to the basket to keep the lead. The Connecticut Huskies have now made history by becoming the first seventh seed to make the cut for the Final Four since the tournament opened up to include 64 teams.
Across the country it was the Kentucky Wildcats making their own mark in the books. In one of the closest games of the tournament, Aaron Harrison hit a three-point shot to get the Wildcats to 75-72, enough to take the game and the ticket to the Final Four for Kentucky. The Wildcats, featuring almost entirely freshman, will now match up with Wisconsin.Eric Drouant
