Wisconsin vs. Kentucky final score: Wildcats advance to national championship with 74-73 win


The Final Four had already seen a surprising game earlier in the day when the UConn Huskies knocked off the Florida Gators, but that was just a small appetizer to the mammoth feast of college basketball we saw in the nightcap between Wisconsin and Kentucky.

For the Badgers, they were a bit of a sleeper team in their region but still managed to win interesting games against Baylor and Arizona to get where they were on Saturday night. But if you’re talking about sleepers then you can’t ignore the Kentucky Wildcats who decided to play their best basketball of the season when it started to matter and had been lights out since their Round of 64 win over Kansas State.

In the last two games, the Wildcats saw things come down to the final moments and they came out on top both times. Saturday night was no exception as Aaron Harrison again nailed a three-pointer with just seconds left int he game to give Kentucky the lead.

Kentucky had been involved in two instant classics in two previous straight games, and the same can be said about their Final Four game against the Wisconsin Badgers.
