(Monday, April 7th)

Final Score: Connecticut 60, Kentucky 54

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Shabazz Napier scored 22 points and Connecticut finished an improbable run through the NCAA Tournament by beating Kentucky 60-54 on Monday night to win the fourth national title in program history, all in the last 16 years. The Huskies, the first No. 7 seed ever to play in the national final, never trailed and survived a 19-5 Kentucky run spanning the first and second half. Ryan Boatright, who stayed in the game despite rolling his left ankle late in the second half, added 14 points for the Huskies (32-8) and Niels Giffey scored 10. James Young had 20 points to lead Kentucky (29-11) and leading scorer Julius Randle contributed 10. The Wildcats, who came out of the Midwest Region as a No. 8 seed, trailed 30-15 with six minutes left in the first half and were only able to pull within one point several times in the second half, never tying the game. The Wildcats were trying to win their second title in three years and ninth overall.
