Wisconsin Beats Arizona to Reach NCAA Final Four With Florida

March 29 (Bloomberg) -- The University of Wisconsin defeated the University of Arizona in overtime to reach the Final Four after Florida won 62-52 to eliminate Dayton at college basketball’s national men’s tournament.

Wisconsin, the No. 2 seed in the West, beat top seed Arizona 64-63 in Anaheim, California, to reach the national semifinals for the first time since 2000. The Badgers are seeking to end a 73-year wait for a second National Collegiate Athletic Association title, while the Wildcats were also chasing a second NCAA title following their only victory in 1997.

Earlier in Memphis, top-seeded Florida ended No. 11 seed Dayton’s run with the win in the South Region final.

The Gators reached the national semifinals for the first time since 2007, when they claimed a second NCAA title a year after securing their first.

The 11th-seeded Dayton had upset No. 6 Ohio State and No. 3 Syracuse before beating No. 10 Stanford to reach the regional final for the first time since 1984. The only other time the Flyers reached the round of eight was in 1967, when they finished runner-up. The loss ends their bid to become the fourth No. 11 seed to reach the Final Four.

The national semifinals are scheduled for April 5 in Arlington, Texas, with the championship game two days later at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Tomorrow, No. 7 Connecticut plays No. 4 Michigan State in the East Region final at Madison Square Garden in New York, before No. 8 Kentucky takes on No.2 Michigan in the Midwest Region final in Indianapolis.
