Kentucky advances to National Championship

Posted:

Aaron Harrison's three pointer sent Kentucky to the Final Four, and now it is taking them to the National Championship.

The Wildcats beat Wisconsin Saturday night.

Wisconsin led at the end of the first half and for a good portion of the second. It was a missed free throw, however, that would haunt the Badgers.

Traevon Jackson made a shot with 16 seconds left to go. Harrison's go-ahead three pointer came with just 5.7 seconds left in the contest, but that was enough for a final Wisconsin shot.

Jackson missed a jumper at the buzzer, ending Wisconsin's quest for their first national title since 1941.

James Young led the Wildcats with 17 points, while Julius Randal contributed 16.

Kentucky now moves on to the National Championship where they face Connecticut, who beat top seeded Florida earlier Saturday.

The National Championships tip off April 7 at 8:10 p.m.
