Kentucky Beats Michigan to Complete Lineup for NCAA Final Four

The University of Kentucky defeated the University of Michigan 75-72 to complete the Final Four lineup at college basketball’s national men’s tournament.

The Wildcats, the Midwest Region champion, will play Wisconsin in Arlington, Texas, on April 5. Connecticut will take on top overall seed Florida the same day for a place in the April 7 title game at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Connecticut today defeated Michigan State 60-54 in the East Region final to become the second No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four after Virginia in 1984. The Huskies won the last of their three National Collegiate Athletic Association men’s basketball titles in 2011.

Kentucky is seeking a ninth national title and first since 2012. The Wolverines won their only NCAA title in 1989 and were runner-up in 2013, the last time they reached the Final Four.
