Final Four

#1Florida (36-2) 68
#7UConn (30-8) 66

In their last meeting in December, Connecticut connected on nearly 46 percent of its three-point tries and Shabazz Napier hit a buzzer-beating jumper for a 65-64 win over Florida. The Final Four grudge match proved another story though as Florida forced UConn into 6-for-16 shooting from behind the arc and controlled the glass in a 68-66 Gators win. Make that 31 consecutive victories and counting for Florida.

Final Four

#2Wisconsin (30-7) 73
#8Kentucky (28-10) 74

Kentucky followed a familiar trend against Wisconsin, turning a deficit into a thrilling comeback win. The Wildcats were down by six points with three minutes to play, but their heralded freshmen displayed the same poise that has become a hallmark of the 2014 NCAA Tournament. James Young, Julius Randle and Andrew Harrison all connected on shots down the stretch as Kentucky stormed back for a 74-73 win.

Final Four

#1Florida (36-2) 73
#8Kentucky (28-10) 71

It was an all-SEC final as Florida took on Kentucky for the fourth time this season. The Gators looked for a 4-0 sweep over the ever-improving Wildcats. The first 40 minutes ended in a stalemate as Cauley-Stein’s basket with eight seconds remaining forced overtime. In the extra period, Casey Prather’s go-ahead shot with 33 seconds left proved the game-winner and Florida captured its third NCAA Tournament championship in program history.
