Harrison, Kentucky overcome Wisconsin at the end

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Fittingly, it was a freshman who put Kentucky over the top again.

The same freshman, in fact, in almost the same spot.

Aaron Harrison knocked down another go-ahead 3-pointer in the final seconds and Kentucky beat Wisconsin 74-73 on Saturday night to reach the NCAA title game.

Harrison's shot from the high left side over Josh Gasser came with 5.7 seconds left and after Traevon Jackson went 2-for-3 on free throws at the other end -- Wisconsin's only missed foul shot of the game.

Jackson backed Harrison off with his dribble on the game's final play, but missed a pull-up jumper at the buzzer.

The Wildcats, seeking their second national championship in three years, will play Connecticut on Monday night at AT&T Stadium. The Huskies knocked off No. 1 overall seed Florida earlier Saturday.

James Young scored 17 points, Julius Randle had 16, Dakari Johnson scored 10, while Harrison and his twin brother Andrew combined for 17 points for Kentucky (29-10).

Freshmen all, they helped the Wildcats -- seeded No. 8 in the Midwest Region -- continue their rise from unfulfilling preseason No. 1 to within one victory of the program's ninth national championship.

Aaron Harrison also hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in the final seconds of last Sunday's win over Michigan to give Kentucky its third Final Four berth in five seasons under John Calipari.

Ben Brust and Sam Dekker scored 15 points apiece to pace Wisconsin (30-8) and leading scorer Frank Kaminsky finished with eight. The Badgers made the Final Four for the first time in coach Bo Ryan's 13 seasons.

"I'm extremely proud of these guys," said Ryan. "We've been on the other end of those and we know what it's like. It means we're done playing this season and I really loved coaching this team."
