No. 8 Kentucky 74, No. 2 WISCONSIN 73

Four Badgers scored in double figures, and Wisconsin shot 52.2 percent from the field in the second half, but Kentucky's Aaron Harrison drilled a go-ahead three-pointer with 5.6 seconds remaining to lead the Wildcats past the Badgers, 74-73, on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium. Kentucky will take on UConn in Monday's national championship game.

The Badgers' Ben Brust and Sam Dekker both scored a team-high 15 points, and were joined in double figures by Traevon Jackson and Bronson Koenig. Kentucky's James Young scored a game-high 17 points. The Wildcats shot 50 percent for the game, but made just two three-pointers.

Wisconsin's senior class includes Brust and Zach Bohannon. The Badgers are scheduled to return starters Dekker, Jackson, Josh Gasser and Frank Kaminsky next season.
