The Final Four went head-to-head on Saturday, as the South’s No. 1 Florida Gators battled the East’s No. 7 Connecticut Huskies, and the West’s No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers took on the Midwest’s No. 8 Kentucky Wildcats. The Gators fell hard in a 63-53 loss despite a strong season that saw them land a 30-game winning streak. Connecticut’s All-American guard Shabazz Napier made it tough for Florida’s Scottie Wilbekin, who barely pulled off four points on 2-of-9 shooting. The other Final Four game was far more epic, as Kentucky’s Aaron Harrison took a pass from his twin brother, Andrew, and scored a game-winning 3-point shot with just 5.7 seconds left on the clock! Now, on April 7, the 31-8 Huskies will face the 29-10 Wildcats in Arlington, Texas. Who will dominate the Championship Game?
