The magical run for the UConn Huskies through the NCAA Tournament will carry over to the national championship game on Monday night as they defeated the top overall seed Florida Gators Saturday night in the Final Four, 63-53.
Florida got off to a hot start, but then it was the Huskies that controlled everything the rest of the way. They were dominant on both the offensive and defensive ends of the court, and those efforts will now put them in position to play for the ultimate prize on Monday night.
Here’s a look at the updated bracket following the huge win by UConn over Florida:
Now, head coach Kevin Ollie, Shabazz Napier and the rest of the UConn team will await the winner of the next Final Four game between the Wisconsin Badgers and Kentucky Wildcats to see who they’ll be facing on Monday for the 2014 National Championship.
But for now, congratulations are in order for the entire UConn Huskies team on this amazing run.
